In its brief history, Teatro San Diego has aspired to excellence in its stage productions. Has been nominated for over a dozen Broadway World Regional Awards since its initial production Songs For A New World (2021).

Review: Teatro San Diego’s reimagined ‘Songs’ makes powerful connection to today’s times  -Pam Kragen

Teatro launched in 2020 with the goal of providing more work for San Diego theater artists of color and the LGBTQ and disabled communities. Its first full production — a filmed staging that opened for streaming over the weekend — follows through on that promise with a diverse cast and creative team and a modern rethinking of “Songs” that clearly reflects the social justice issues of today, while still honoring the musical’s origins.

New Teatro San Diego Debuts with Personal and Intense ‘Songs for a New World’
- Pat Launer

Whatever turn our lives were taking before, COVID has forced us to take a hard look at where we were and where we want to go or be — to re-visit, as these songs do, our hopes, dreams, fears, failures, potential and possibilities. Though the pandemic is never mentioned or referred to in the Teatro San Diego production, this “color-conscious” company, “defining All American,” committed to “raising the visibility of the underrepresented communities of San Diego,” has certainly placed the piece squarely in our time.

Teatro San Diego Makes a Big Entrance  -David Dixon

As more shows are being produced, both live and virtually, on a regular basis, it is a perfect time for a new company to make a big introduction to the San Diego theatre community. Teatro San Diego is currently presenting their inaugural production of Jason Robert Brown’s 1995 musical, Songs for a New World.

Teatro San Diego “exists to further the founding social activists and artists’ vision of bringing to life the multi-cultural spirit of San Diego through world-class visual and performing arts.”
