Zoot Suit, play by Luis Valdez with musical numbers Lalo Guerrero, was inspired by the murder case Sleepy Lagoon (1942), which led to the prosecution and unjust sentencing of 12 young Pachuco.
 
The work is also based on the violent clashes between police and US Pachuco during 1943 and dramatizes racial intolerance suffered by the Mexican community in Los Angeles, California, during World War II.
 
Its premiere took place in Los Angeles in 1978, and in 1981 was made into a film under the direction of Luis Valdez same. This masterpiece of Chicano and American theater recreates the political and social climate in which they lived the children of Mexican immigrants between 16 and 20 years of age and culture of resistance created using the zoot suit (the "zoot suit ") and language (or slang) that combines English and Spanish.
 
Currently the figure of "Pachuco" in Zoot Suit is iconic and a symbol of identity for the Chicano community, composed mostly of children of Mexican immigrants organized around an important socio-political mobilization that began in the early years 60 '. Artistic expressions as Zoot suit are inspiration for Mexicans on both sides of the border. This is the first time Zoot suit comes in Mexico. The National Theatre Company integrates from this date in his repertoire
