Pregones/PRTT's ¡GUARACHA! -

Pregones Puerto Rican Traveling Theater, Inc.

  Artistic Director's Note  


Welcome to Pregones + Puerto Rican Traveling Theater as we celebrate yet another Season of new works, the return of audience favorites and the presentation of a broad range of guest artists.


When we announced our merger four years ago, we did so as a promise to New York City, to our audiences and to our artistic community. We activated our Bronx Manhattan Theater Express, a virtual railroad that has been actively circulating audiences between our Boroughs, experiencing the riches of our ground-breaking theaters.


Our 2019-20 Season began in full force with Stage Garden Rumba. Artists and Bronx community organizers took the stages of our Bronx public gardens for outdoors performances and information sharing events.


We are glad you have joined us as we celebrate another Season of great theater, music and dance. We hope you return to PRTT in January for a reprise performance by the celebrated FLACO NAVAJA in Evolution of a Sonero, directed by Jorge B. Merced, Associate Artistic Director at Pregones/PRTT.


And then take the theater express to Pregones in The Bronx, as we welcome guest artists from San Francisco and Cuba in the production We Have Iré, which I had the pleasure to direct, written by PAUL S. FLORES and with musical compositions by YOSVANI TERRY.


Our 21 ISLANDS International Short Films Festival, followed by March Is Music will then launch us into an exciting roster of events in the Spring and Summer of 2020.


This Season we take pride in the role of music in theater, in the way in which we have developed our own musical vocabulary for the stage. Several decades of creating new works, building a repertory that has traveled stages throughout the world and generations of artists who have enriched their training on our stages, have brought Pregones + Puerto Rican Traveling Theater to where we are today.


Thank you again for visiting with us today. Please take a moment to visit MIRIAM’S, a gallery on our second floor, in honor of our beloved Miriam Colón, founder of the Puerto Rican Traveling Theater.
