In Memoriam

Miriam Colón (1936-2017)
Founder of The Puerto Rican Traveling Theater

“Theater can do so much... to open awareness of ourselves, our communities and our fellow beings... helping new generations discover the richness of their own culture, the richness of what our contribution is to society... when we are gone — that’s all that stays.”
