Santa Cruz Theater. Instigated by the dramatic changes to our city, the LCP’s “Gentrif*cked” examines the causes and consequences of gentrification as it affects Austin and communities across America.
The LCP asks: What happens when a community’s piñata shops are demolished and replaced with cat-friendly vegan coffeehouses? When neighborhood pulgas are transformed overnight into luxury condos? Or when Mexicans are replaced with obsessively dog-walking paddleboard enthusiasts? Through their trademark mix of live sketches, music and original videos, the LCP provides all the hard answers and leaves no one unscathed in “Gentrif*cked.”
