De La Guarda's Diqui James (co-founder/co-creator) and Gaby Kerpel (composer/musical director) created Fuerza Bruta, which began performances Oct. 11, 2007, and opened Oct. 24 at the former home of De La Guarda.
Last fall producers announced that Fuerza Bruta would end its run Nov. 10, 2012. Ticket demand prompted the production to continue its life for an additional year.
"New York City has blessed us these past six years. We're very thankful for the love and support that we have received and we look forward to the next chapter of Fuerza Bruta," producer Stephen Shaw said in a statement.
Fuerza Bruta premiered in Buenos Aires in 2005. Since its New York debut, Fuerza Bruta has played over 1,400 performances Off-Broadway. The production has also been seen in 20 cities worldwide, including Cordoba, Sao Paulo, Rosario, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Queretaro, Antwerp, Bilbao, Knokke Heist, Madrid, Berlin, Tel Aviv and many others. An Asian tour launched in Manila in February 2012.
S2BN Entertainment, Stephen Howard and Stephen Shaw produce the New York run.
Tickets to Fuerza Bruta at the Daryl Roth Theatre, 20 Union Square East (at 15th Street), can be purchased by calling (212) 239-6200 or at the box office. A limited number of $30 (cash-only) rush tickets are available two hours prior to curtain.
