But today we wanted to go back and kick it old school with this shot from our award winning production in the ’11-12 season, Oedipus El Rey, contrasting Nick Ortega and his vatos locos with some hip and stylin’ guys from Bangkok who’ve adopted the Mexican gangster look becoming what our Identity Bootcamp moderator called “identity hoppers”, and creating a very interesting subculture.  So what do you think?
