Dolores Huerta, Co-Founder of the United Farm Workers and Enrique Castillo, acclaimed author of "August 29th" will lead an Open Forum discussion on the lives of legends, Cesar Chavez and Ruben Salazar. The discussion will take place in conjunction with six-time Emmy nominated actor, Ed Begley, Jr.'s critically acclaimed musical production, CESAR & RUBEN.

Huerta, co-founded the United Farm Workers Union alongside Chavez and Castillo, co-writer of the play, "August 29th" which chronicles the life of Salazar, the slain Los Angeles Times Journalist. The two will take to the stage immediately following the Sunday matinee production of CESAR & RUBEN to offer personal insight, ideas and dialog about the two hispanic icons, their lives and work. Audience members will be invited to ask questions, offer comments and ideas.

"This is an opportunity to learn about the lives of Chavez and Salazar through song and dance and then to hear first hand accounts of their lives through people who knew them well", says Begley.

The production, CESAR & RUBEN opened on August 10th and was originally scheduled to close on September 9th but due to critical acclaim and large ticket sales, the production has been held over until November 4th.
