Latino Theater Co. Extends Management Contract at L.A. Theatre Center

After an extension with the city of Los Angeles, the organization will now manage the venue through 2056.

LOS ANGELES: The Latino Theater Company has announced that a new contract with the city of Los Angeles will extend the terms of the theatre’s agreement to manage the city-owned Los Angeles Theatre Center for an additional 30 years.

“We are incredibly honored that the city continues to put its trust in the Latino Theater Company,” said artistic director José Luis Valenzuela in a statement. “We understand the responsibility this represents, and are thrilled to know we have a home and can continue our diverse cultural programming for the next three decades.”

The Latino Theater Company, now in its 35th year, has operated the center since 2006, when it was awarded a 20-year lease. The theatre presented an anchor slate of theatre, dance, musical, and other live performances in addition to educational programs. The new agreement, executed as a second amendment to the original agreement, cements the organization’s tenancy through 2056. A first amendment was added in 2013 to recognize the organization’s years of providing “effective first-class theater center operations.”
