Duo Theater / Teatro Dúo


62 East 4th Street
New York City, New York
Founded in 1969 by Magaly Alabau and Manuel Martín Jr. in the poorest section of what is now called the Lower East Side (see Teatro Dúo). In 1984, Manuel Martín Jr., Randy Barceló, and Ilka Tanya Pagán signed the lease on the space on 4th Street (see Duo Theater History). In 2006, Michelangelo Alasá and Anthony Ruiz bought the space from the Department of Housing Preservation and Development for $1 each to be preserved as cultural institutions (see Sara G. Levin, "Lessons in Maintenance for Arts Groups on E. 4th." The Villager 75.39, February 15 -21 2006).
