Intar, the oldest Hispanic theater company in New York, has moved away from the Spanish classics and now it draws....

Consider the above sample sentence
I know this question has been solved by ron in other forums but my query is regarding the pronoun reference
Does the pronoun 'it' have multiple referants here as in does 'it' refer to New York and Intar
or
since the phrase 'the oldest Hispanic theater company in New York'
is an additive phrase we can say that 'it' has only a single antecedent i.e.Intar
plase explain,iam very confused about this concept.

The 'it' in this phrase indeed refers to Intar, the theater company. As you correctly explained, the phrase between commas is additive, so the reference 'it' can only pertain to one reference - Intar.

Just to further explain the situation in this sentence:
In this sentence, this is also further made clear by the fact that the following sentence says 'has moved away from the Spanish classics and now it draws.....'. Can a city (New York) move away from the classics? No, but a theater company can. So the reference. Sometimes the clues we pick up from the meaning of the sentence can be as valuable as those we pick up from the construction.

Here 'it' undoubtably refer the theatre 'Intar' so there should not be any confusion

i agree that here only one reference for it. Do you have another view for this case?

"it" refers to Intar
Also check whether logically fits into the sentence or not
