December 6th: Hostos Center presents Teatro SEA’s My Superhero: Roberto Clemente.

Premiered in June 2014 by Teatro SEA, “My Superhero: Roberto Clemente” is written and directed by Manuel Moran which features puppetry along with original music by Mora and Alejandro Zuleta.  Moran was a co-producer of the off-Broadway production of “DC-7: The Story of Roberto Clemente” and developed this version especially for young people. In a New York Daily News interview, Moran said that “our children need heroes, heroes that look like them, that sound like them.”  This will be the musical’s premiere in the Bronx.
