In 1972, Repertorio Español moved to the Gramercy Arts Theatre where the company has since remained The critical success of the company’s first production, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf set the stage for years of admiration by English and Spanish newspaper critics and the company’s audiences

From its earliest days, Repertorio has maintained a dramatic ensemble, attracting many talented veterans and emerging Hispanic actors, including Yolanda Arenas and Ofelia González, who was the first actress to win an Obie Award without having performed in English Another addition was Pilar Rioja in 1973, marking the beginning of a relationship that has established Ms Rioja as a legend in Spanish Dance In 1980, Musical Director Pablo Zinger initiated a musical ensemble that presented zarzuelas, operas, and elegant musical anthologies

In 1984, the company began to present and commission new plays by Hispanic American playwrights, and in 1991 it inaugurated an infrared simultaneous translation system that provides an opportunity for non-Spanish-speaking audiences to enjoy the company’s vast selection of plays

More recently, Repertorio presented the world premiere in Spanish of Nilo Cruz’s Pulitzer Prize-winning drama Ana en el trópico Anna in the Tropics The play’s cast included celebrities such as Spanish TV soap opera star Francisco Gattorno and Denise Quiñones Miss Universe 2001
