Five young Latino men from East Los Angeles ascribe near-mystical powers to a beautifully tailored suit in the window of Shumway’s Sunshine Suits. The suit is white, the luscious color of vanilla ice cream, so pure in color that it radiates its own special glow.
If only Martinez had that suit, then Celia, the prettiest girl in the neighborhood, might notice him. If only Villanazul had that suit, then he could really impress people as a public speaker. If only Gomez or Dominguez had that suit, they’d be hits with the ladies. If only Vamenos had that suit, he would cease to be a social pariah and instead become the life of the party.
Get the idea? The magical power of the wonderful ice cream suit is to imbue its wearer with confidence. When you’re well dressed, you feel like a million bucks and anything is possible. Why do you ever feel otherwise?
Alan Neal Hubbs, resident director of Ray Bradbury’s Pandemonium Theatre Company, helms a cast that includes Don Appleby, James Casanova, Adrian Elizondo, Joaquin Garay III, Daniel V. Graulau, Joan Jack, Verona Masongsong, Joy Nash, Roses Prichard, Paul Renteria, Eddie Ruiz, Rudy Rodriguez, and Philip Sokoloff
