Part investigative theater and part poetic fiction, TORCHED! brings forward true stories of those who lived through the fabled and devastating fires of the 1970s to lay bare the infamies of the arson-for-profit business. Pulsing to the beat of salsa, funk-disco, and hip-hop, TORCHED! features a Latinx ensemble cast of ten actors and musicians under the direction of Rosalba Rolón and musical director Desmar Guevara.

TORCHED! was developed by United States Artists Fellow and Doris Duke Artist Award recipient Rosalba Rolón, in consultation with historians, theater makers, scholars, and activists who jointly helped lay the groundwork for the production. “They all share in its triumphs. TORCHED! is so much about reclaiming a shared history and about giving credit where credit is due. With this production, we join the generations of Bronx artists and activists shining light on this period of our history,” says Rolón.
