It’s time for ACE Awards


It’s that great time of year, deep in winter when Repertorio gets to celebrate the recognition it has garnered by the ACE Awards.

The ACE (Asociación de Cronistas de Espectáculos or The Association of Latin Entertainment Critics) is one of the most prestigious and unique awards for Latino artists and productions. Founded in 1967, the organization is dedicated to the continued support of Latino arts and entertainment and is internationally recognized.

This year, ACE Awards are raining on the cast and team of Virgilio Piñera’s Aire frío, directed by the talented Leyma López. Barceló con hielo‘s Fernando Then will also be taking home an award, as will Federico García Lorca’s La zapatera prodigiosa for Best Comedy.
