CC is back with a show at once funny, satirically barbed, and quite moving. For years the Latino troupe has gone around the country interviewing diverse Americans, eliciting responses you won't often hear on TV (in fact, you realize how whitebread TV's become when you hear the Clash on how it feels to be a Muslim taxi driver or a Vietnam vet who can't afford to live in the country he "defended" - in the same scene with a Ugandan and a Filipino extolling its freedoms). Their current show, which runs FOR ONLY TWO WEEKS at the San Diego Rep, blends old and new material. It's at once an oral history and a "performance collage" update on where things are, especially in San Diego (CC does something not enough local writers do: tell you things you didn't know about our region). Richard Montoya performs arresting monologues, woven with humor and pain; Ricardo Salinas does his hilarious anatomy of salsa styles, among other bits; and Herbert Siguenza creates a panoply of so many different characters it's hard to choose a favorite.
