En Foco and Pregones Theatre Present…

The Pregones Theatre was lively on Wednesday evening.  With people filing in straight off the Trolley and others with kids darting in out of the cold. Everyone was coming for the {free} concert with Los Charlatanes & Navegante and to take in the gorgeous portraits on exhibit by photographer Rojelio Reyes Rodriguez.  I was there for the photos and a chance to say hello to Marisol Diaz of En Foco. Us folk mingling together in the front hall kept being shushed by Pregones staff…funny considering the booming music pouring in from the concert in the theatre (which was packed).  Good time had by all!

En Foco is a Bronx based non-profit devoted to exposing photography from camera holders representing diverse cultural perspectives. They publish a gorgeous award winning magazine, Nueva Luz, and offer a lot of resources to get photographers exhibit ready. The latest post on their blog, for example, is how to exhibit on a lean budget.

Pregones is a community theatre and a really great space. They’ve been in the Bronx since 1979 and have incredible savings on their ticket pricing to keep the theatre accessible.  They offer Zip Tickets, 50% off for residents in zip codes 10451/Mott Haven, 10452/Highbridge, 10454/Port Morris, and 10474/Hunts Point. This is their special gift to their friends and neighbors in the Bronx Empowerment Zone.  They also offer 30% off for full-time students and adults over 65.

Actually, with the discount, the cost of a ticket for most of their productions, is not much more than going to see a movie.

It’s important to keep supporting our Bronx arts organizations, now more than ever!
