Overview

I-DJ by Gregg Barrios

Gregg Barrios captures the heady times of living and loving in Los Angeles in the 1980s in his play I-DJ. The play is a coming of age story of a gay Mexican-American dance club DJ Amado Guerrero Paz (aka Warren Peace). This two-act play takes place in one evening even though the story covers the decades of the 1960s to the '80s. DJ Warren Peace sets the audience straight right away: "Tonight's ground rules are simple. Play original A&M Record vinyl releases-Nada más." I-DJ is scored with the strategically placed music of A&M recording artists Herb Alpert & Tijuana Brass (The Lonely Bull and Whipped Cream) The Carpenters (Yesterday Once More, One Fine Day, and Fun, Fun, Fun) Chris Montez (Call Me), Cat Stevens (Peace Train), Procol Harum (Conquistador) Humble Pie (I Don't Need a Doctor). DJ Warren Peace's life journey captures the turmoil of his times, the struggle for gay identity, the Chicano civil rights movement, and the AIDS crisis in a dramatic and personal way.
