TeatroStageFest: Where Latin Culture & NYC Culture Collide

Teatro Stage Fest has just wrapped up its second summer of performances, though its programs will continue through the fall and winter.

The idea for TeatroStageFest began in 2003, when Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg appointed José W. Fernandez as a Commissioner on the NYC Latin Media & Entertainment Commission. As Mr. Fernandez worked with the other Commissioners to promote New York City as the center of Latin entertainment, he was inspired to bring together the many Hispanic theaters that are part of New York City's cultural life. He joined with Susana Tubert, an established theater director, to found the Latino International Theater Festival of New York, Inc.(LITF/NY) to achieve this goal.

LITF/NY is a tax-exempt non-profit organization that promotes Latino theater and nurtures the next generation of Latino theater artists and audiences in New York.  In addition to TeatroStageFest, the annual two-week celebration that presents great theater from New York, Latin America, the Caribbean, and Spain, hosts year-round programs to make New York Latino theater more accessible to all audiences and to empower local Latino theater companies and artists.

These initiatives include providing services such as free professional training workshops, free workshops for high school students, facilitating partnerships between New York City-based Latino theater companies and regional, national and international organizations, and publishing materials for professional development and Latino theater audience development such as its “Free Guide to Latino Theater in New York,” distributed to students and artists.
