The group's initiative is to bring a little piece of our island to the growing Puerto Rican diaspora, living in New York City. Pasadia Familiar wants to present human condition based on the latino experience in the United States, without excluding foreign views to ours. The production offers a multicultural and diverse first class entertainment hand by hand with a political, social and critical constructive message.
