    The festival is headed by Luis Felipe Rodríguez, noted Dominican actor and theater director, and includes the collaboration of the Commissioner’s Theater and the Commissioner’s team.
    The Hispanic Theater Festival is celebrated annually by the Dominican Commissioner of Culture in the United States, an entity of the Dominican Republic’s Ministry of Culture, with the purpose of offering a space for cultural exchange among Hispanic thespians in the United States and other countries, and to spread the theatric productions of these groups.
