General info

Teatro Vista, Theatre with a View, was founded in 1990 by Edward Torres and Henry Godinez to address the lack of opportunities for Latinx artists and other artists of color, and to explore the new work of Latinx writers that challenged not only the actor and director, but also the audience.

In 1995, Godinez left the company and Edward Torres became Artistic Director. Under Torres’ direction, Teatro Vista used the stage to engage, connect and challenge audience members through Latinx stories that reflect the universality of our humanity. In 2011, Teatro Vista was celebrated as one of 25 of “Chicago’s cultural leaders” by the Arts & Business Council of Chicago, and received the League of Chicago Theatres’ Artistic Leadership Award.

In January 2013, ensemble member Ricardo Gutiérrez became its new Artistic Director. Today, Teatro Vista is enjoying its 25th season, having grown to be Chicago’s preeminent Equity Latinx theater company producing full scale, Latinx theatrical productions in English.
