ADVANCING THE CRAFT OF TEATRO
WHILE HONORING OUR TRADITIONS
Teatro Espejo has been bringing theatre to the community for more than 40 years. Under the guidance of Artistic Director and Professor Emeritus, Manuel José Pickett, Teatro Espejo has remained dedicated to offering opportunities to teatristas of all ages and skill levels. Our seasons honor the rich legacy and history of teatro by producing important classic works from the Chicano/Latinx theatre cannon, and groundbreaking contemporary works by new, emerging, and established playwrights representing the Latinx diaspora.
With the recent addition of director/educator Nicole C. Limón to the directorial and creative team, Teatro Espejo confirmed its commitment to advancing gender parity on stage and behind the scenes, consciously creating substantial opportunities for female actors, playwrights, designers and technicians. (Such as our recent produciton of Enfrascada by Tanya Saracho, a hilarious dark comedy that featured an all-female cast, director, set and lighting designer - and broke a box office record! And our upcoming 6th Annual Summer One-Act Festival, featuring a line-up of THREE female playwrights, with two all-female casts.)
Teatro Espejo is committed to producing works that challenge and reflect our actors and audiences, such as our recent production of “Lydia” by Octavio Solis (photos below), and that create an opportunity for theatre artists to develop their craft in a supportive and encouraging environment. We do this while taking great pride in sharing stories that are culturally relevant and that address socio-political issues important to our community!
