The Latino Theater Company will present more than a dozen productions at the newly renovated Los Angeles Theater Center, according to Variety.

The troupe was founded in 1985 and assumed operations of the Los Angeles Theater Center in January 2006, having been granted a 20-year lease by the City of Los Angeles Dept. of Cultural Affairs. The new complex — following a $4 million renovation — now houses four performance spaces (at capacities of 500, 320, 269 and 99 seats). It will also serve as home to the Latino Museum of History, Art and Culture; Culture Clash; the Robey Theatre Company; Cedar Grove Productions; Playwrights Arena; the American Indian Dance Theatre; The East Los Angeles Classical Theatre; and the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television.

Opening the new LATC will be Lonnie Carter's The Romance of Magno Rubio and Dan Guerrero's Gaytino! (Oct. 25-28). Upcoming productions will include SITI Co.'s War of the Worlds — The Radio Play (Oct. 26-28), Teatro Avante's staging of Garcia Lorca's Yerma (Nov. 15-18), Leslie Lewis Sword's solo Miracle in Rwanda (Nov. 15-18), Motti Lerner's Benedictus (Nov. 29-Dec. 2) and two LTC productions, Melancholia (Nov. 1-11) and La Virgen De Guadalupe, Dios Inantzin (Dec. 6-22).

LTC founder Jose Luis Valenzuela serves as artistic director of the new LATC. The Los Angeles Theatre Center is located at 514 S. Spring St. in downtown Los Angeles.
