A Pioneer of the Hispanic theater movement in New York City, Miriam Colon became the first Puerto Rican admitted to Elia Kazan and Lee Strasberg Actors’ Studio. Besides her performances on Broadway, film and television, Colon worked towards increasing the recognition and oppurtunities for Hispanics in the performing arts and co-founded New York’s first Spanish- language theater as well as the Puerto Rican Traveling Theater. Setting the stage for one of her most important contributions to the Latino community, her Traveling Theater performs in the parks, playgrounds and streets of New York’s most deprived Hispanic neighborhoods.
