About The Castillo Theatre:
The award-winning Castillo Theatre, established in 1983, opens up the world of cutting-edge political theatre to young people and adults of all backgrounds. Castillo serves as a multicultural home for Black Theatre, a showplace for the works of East German playwright, Heiner Müller, and our late artistic director, Fred Newman. Castillo provides a creative environment in which people of all ages can produce and experience theatre that deals with contemporary and historical social issues.
Castillo is leading the way in ensuring that artistic freedom, multi-cultural voices and community-based theatre thrives. Every year, over 6,000 people from the diverse communities of New York City come to see productions at Castillo Theatre.
