Latin Theatre

Latin theatre traditions go back through Spain, Rome and Greece. The Western theatre traditions of Greece were absorbed by the Romans and spread around the Mediterranean.

During the Spanish Golden Age, all levels of society from royals to street people, went to the theatre. So many plays were produced that they even had an impact on English theatre.

Spanish-language Broadway has never succeeded, but we are present in stories, playwrights, actors, dancers and the many people it takes to produce a Broadway show.

Hamilton, the Broadway hit of our generation, was written by Lin-Manuel Miranda (In the Heights), a Puerto Rican New Yorker.

Colombian choreographer Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys, The Addams Family, Summer: The Donna Summer Musical, On Your Feet, Ain’t Too Proud) keeps winning Tony Awards.

Filipino-American Robert Lopez (The Book of Mormon, Avenue Q and songs for Frozen and Coco) is the youngest person to have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony, and the only person to have won all four awards twice.

Broadway has noticed and is just waiting for the next great Latin talent. Let’s show our stuff.
