You don't have to speak Spanish to revel in the richness of Latino culture at GALA Hispanic Theatre—every performance has surtitles. And GALA founders Rebecca and Hugo Medrano create such vivid productions and bring such talented artists to their stage that audiences almost don't need to know Spanish to enjoy what they see.The Medranos have "preserved, promoted, and continued the first solely Hispanic theater in DC for decades, educating children and the public in the classics," says Dorothy McSweeny, former chair of the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. "In times of economic stress, they have hardly taken salaries in order to present a season of the best plays and artists from all over the Latino world."
