Teatro Vista

(Bio as of April 2012)

Teatro Vista most recently collaborated with the Goodman on Fish Men during the 2011/2012 Season. Teatro Vista was founded in 1989 by Chicago theater artists Edward Torres and Henry Godinez, along with a collective of Equity and non-Equity actors. Teatro Vista is firmly committed to sharing and celebrating the riches of Latino culture with all Chicago theater audiences. This commitment stems from the belief that there are as many similarities between us as there are differences, and that the answer to breaking down the walls of prejudice and stereotypes lies in understanding these differences. Ultimately, it is through this “view” that Teatro Vista intends to bridge the gap between Latino and non-Latino cultures in Chicago.
