[COMPAÑÍA JUAN B.] PADILLA. The Compañía Juan B. Padilla ( San Antonio, Texas), also known as the Compañía Dramática y de Zarzuela, was organized some time before June 12, 1913, by actor-manager Juan B. Padilla. He acquired a lease on the proscenium-equipped Teatro Zaragoza, newly built in San Antonio, Texas, in 1912 at 805 West Commerce Street. Proprietor Sam Lucchese had opened it sometime before June 12. Although the first documented performance was G. A. Rossini opera buffa, The Barber of Seville, the first dramatic performance occurred two nights later with the production of Malditassean las mujeres, (Damned be All Women)
