"It is proof that
the theater is on the streetin the neighbourhoods, in the city and that the theater is a great school for spectators, by bringing to the halls, to the stage, those who, in the best of cases, only sat in the seats", explained Rodríguez, satisfied with the growing participation, especially female, in this type of groups.
