Biographical history

TeatroStageFest is an annual production of Latino International Theater Festival of New York, Inc., a non-profit organization that actively supported New York Latino theater year-round, and served as a portal to Ibero-American theater companies from around the world. It was co-founded by Susana Tubert and José W. Fernández in 2005. Fernández was a member of mayor Michael Bloomberg's NYC Latin Media & Entertainment Commission. Working to promote New York City as the center of Latin entertainment, they recognized the need to spotlight the Latino Theater on the New York City Theater scene and TeatroStageFest was a result of their efforts to bring it to light.

Susana Tubert was an established producer of film, television, and theater in New York City, with extensive experience in Hispanic entertainment. She was approached by José W. Fernandez in 2005 to chair the Latino International Theater Festival of New York, Inc., to which she has dedicated her time for the last seven years.
