The Old "Teatro Puerto Rico"


The Old "Teatro Puerto Rico"

The old theater on East 138th Street in the Bronx is now a church: a "Pare de Sufrir," "Stop Suffering" Universal church.

In its day, the Teatro Puerto Rico was a vibrant center for variety shows and entertainment in Spanish-language show business. It was like the Puerto Rican Apollo. Too bad it wasn't preserved as the Apollo was.
