In “Gentrif*cked” Emmy-nominated sketch troupe The Latino Comedy Project examines the causes and consequences of gentrification as it affects communities across America. The LCP asks: What happens when a community’s piñata shops are demolished and replaced with vegan cat-friendly coffeehouses? When neighborhood flea markets are transformed overnight into luxury condos? When Mexicans are replaced with obsessively dog-walking paddleboard enthusiasts? Through a dynamic mixture of live sketches and original videos, the LCP provides all the hard answers in “Gentrif*cked.” They’re bad. They’re brown. They're The Latino Comedy Project. ($45 Orchestra - Front, $35 Orchestra - Side/Rear, $25 Mezzanine, All Ages)
