Thanks to the extraordinary contributions of participating artists, crew, volunteers, board members, staff, sponsors, partners, and a heartwarming audience . . . TeatroStageFest came to life in the first two weeks of May 2007! Click here to view a short video with highlights.
We are proud to say that TeatroStageFest featured 20 different productions and events; brought together 178 artists, including 15 local theater companies and 42 international artists; attracted thousands of visitors; and raised awareness to millions more through partnerships with community/cultural groups, NYC & Company sponsored street banners, and the generous support of our many media partners, including The New York Times, El Diario/La Prensa, People en Español, V-me, and more. Gracias a todos!
