The Castillo Theatre, aka the Castillo Cultural Center, is a controversial presence in New York. Dubbed by some as a cult, the Center and its wide-ranging activities are for others community-building, socially constructive, and avantgarde. Castillo is very much the creature of its founder and leader, psychotherapist/playwright/social philosopher Fred Newman. The articles and interview in this section include an overall assessment of Castillo, a detailed discussion of Newman's production of Heiner Mu¨ller's Germania 3 Ghosts at Deadman, and a “directors dialogue” between Newman and Robert Wilson. An earlier essay on Castillo appeared in T135 (36:3, 1992), Eva Brenner's “Theatre of the Unorganized: The Radical Independence of the Castillo Cultural Center.”
