UrbanTheater Company’s 10th anniversary season is off to a promising and exciting start! UTC has transformed their new home at Batey Urbano, thanks to the Puerto Rican Cultural Center converting Batey Urbano into a charming and welcoming storefront theater. In their second decade, UTC will continue to bring “the streets to the stage” making professional theater accessible to the community of Humboldt Park. Last weekend, the opening of José Rivera’s “Adoration of the Old Woman” premiered and was received with standing ovations by sold out audiences.
