The Bronx-Broadway Showcase for Latino Theater at Pregones/PRTT

Plataforma introduces two exciting innovations to the field and to our season:

#1It solicits curatorial ideas, advisement and recommendations from thinkers and practitioners inside and outside of the arts.


#2It contracts Latino artists of merit to work cooperatively with Pregones/PRTT in developing and presenting their original works.


Artists already developing new works in collaboration with our ensemble:

  • John Leguizamo with his new musical comedy, Pain In The Aztec.
  • David Maldonado and Waddy Jaquez with their new musical, I Like It Like That! A Musical.
  • Magdalena Gómez and Elise Santora with the new solo piece, ‘Chopping’.

A multi-sector resource team, plus a standout selection of local and national theatermakers — who also gain privileged access to Pregones/ PRTT’s acclaimed ensemble and cooperative methodologies— give PLATAFORMA its distinct personality.

One helps harness additional expertise in arts production, marketing, sales, audience and community engagement, cross-sector relation- ship building, and collaborations. The other manages and deploys shared resources into a recurring 8- to 10-week PLATAFORMA run at the historic Puerto Rican Traveling Theater on 47th Street.

Creative placemaking is a major factor, and PLATAFORMA drives new activity between the Bronx and Manhattan as much as it will leverage our privileged arts location within the Broadway district.


PLATAFORMA is made possible, in part, by the Theater Subdistrict Council LDC, Time Warner Inc., and by public funds from the New York State Regional Economic Development Councils via New York State Council on the Arts, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
