“Routes” will develop a nationwide Theatre Section devoted to “Theatres of Color”. “Routes” welcomes your knowledge of existing theatres and productions. Please email email@example.com. The Coalition of Theatres of Color (CTC) was first convened in 2004 by the late Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee to address the inequity of funding to chronically underfunded theaters of color.

Together, CTC seeks to sustain the legacy of our institutions while producing, supporting, collaborating and presenting productions and events that tell our stories, our way, with pride and dignity.
