Boricuas in the Bronx like to mix it up with interdisciplinary productions.. The Troupe's Story The genesis legend for Pregones asserts that the company's first production took place in an off-Broadway house when a Puerto Rican security guard let the players perform a standing-room-only show after-hours. Whether the tale is apocryphal or not, the gypsy spirit inhabits the company to this day. From a short stint in Manhattan in the late `70s, through residencies at a converted public school, and then two churches (St. Margaret's and St. Ann's) in the 'hood for the last 20 years, the company appears to be always on the move.
The Continuing Travails Even now, the troupe finds itself about to abandon its 50-seat loft space on the Grand Concourse in the South Bronx in search of finer digs. No matter where they alight next, with its long-standing commitment to Puerto Rican culture and musically enhanced storytelling, Pregones appears destined to end up in the right place at the right time.
