Theater in Spanish - THE BARRACK

Welcome to the website of our Group of Theater in Spanish, "The Barrack"

Directed by Dr. Alejandra Juno Rodríguez Villar

Founded in 2019

Welcome to our wonderful world of the Comedia! In 2019, Dr. Rodríguez-Villar established this theater company, which performs in Spanish to bring the Spanish Golden Age theater to all places. This was also the mission of La Barraca, the famous theater company founded by Lorca, and this is also the reason why our name is The Barrack: Because we want to emulate and pay tribute in the USa to what Lorca did in Spain in the '30s of the past century.
