Teatro de la Luna was founded in 1991 with a mission of providing DC's Spanish- and English-speaking community with a source of high quality theater as seen from a Latin American perspective. They present their productions at the Rosslyn Spectrum, 1611 North Kent Street, as well as in various other area venues. Their performances are in Spanish, with English surtitles or live English dubbing offered at their mainstage productions and during International Festivals of Hispanic Theater.

Teatro de la Luna founders Mario Marcel, Graciela Walder and Marcel Ferlito

They work to promote Hispanic culture and foster cross-cultural understanding between the Spanish- and English-speaking communities via Spanish-language theater and bilingual performing arts. They produce plays, teach theater workshops to adults and children, organize poetry marathons and produce International Festivals of Hispanic Theater. All these activities provide opportunities for community dialogue, participation, reflection and support.

Whether you're a local fan like me or if you've never visited them before, stop by at 5pm to say hello and congratulate them on their continued success.
