For more than 25 years, The Castillo Theatre has produced cutting-edge political theatre that challenges as it entertains. Castillo has staged over 120 productions by many of the world's leading political playwrights, often highlighting the theatrical works of retired Artistic Director Fred Newman and German avant-gardist Heiner Müller. Independent of government funding, Castillo produces developmental culture that builds and strengthens communities. A long -time center of performance activism, the Castillo Theatre includes people of all ages and backgrounds and showcases the work of playwrights from Germany and Martinique as well as Bed- Stuy and the Bronx .
Castillo is a program of the non-profit All Stars Project, Inc. (ASP), a non-traditional theatrical production house which promotes human development through performance. Now, from its four newly renovated theatres on 42 nd Street, a wide array of performance experiences are created by and for all of New York's diverse communities
