Teatro Círculo is a theater company founded by a group of Puerto Rican artists with a strong academic background committed to preserving and promoting its cultural heritage through the presentation of creative, inclusive and educational theater works.
Teatro Círculo’s programs are offered and accessible to the entire community in the five boroughs of NYC. They seek to fulfill two basic needs in two different fronts – The appetite of the rapidly growing Latino community for high quality contemporary and classical theater productions and by seeking to serve as a forum for emerging and professional theater artists for the exchange of techniques, concepts and artistic expression.
Teatro Círculo’s mission enthuses four major program areas, including a mainstage season featuring award-winning classical, contemporary and original plays, a national and international touring program featured in classical competitions and invited to Spanish speaking communities lacking local theater access, a school program engaging students in learning about their heritage through workshops and visiting performances and professional master classes for emerging and established artists led by world class directors. In the last decade, the company has won more than 50 awards for excellence in the Hispanic theatre, including an OBIE for tour classical work and numerous ACE Awards and HOLA Awards.
