Famed Sportscaster Bob Costas Joins Luis Roberto Clemente for Performance of DC-7, The Roberto Clemente Story

On Friday February 24, Luis Roberto Clemente came to the Puerto Rican Traveling Theatre in Midtown Manhattan for the 8pm performance of DC-7 the new bilingual musical that pays tribute to the life and legacy of his father, MLB Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente. This was the second time Clemente saw the award-winning play and he brought with him famed sportscaster Bob Costas and Clemente family licensing agent Michael Hermann to experience the musical for the first time. “I was so impressed with the footage and images they used of my father,” said Clemente. “Especially near the end of the show, some of the images they used really hit me very hard. I thought it was great.” All three of them gave the performance a standing ovation and, according to Clemente, there wasn’t a dry eye among them. “For this generation who never got to know my father, Modesto Lacen does a great job portraying him,” said Clemente. “He resembles him a lot and with his singing especially, he gives an amazing performance.” DC-7, The Roberto Clemente Story, is playing through the end of March at the Puerto Rican Traveling Theatre. For more information, and to purchase tickets,visit WWW.TEATROSEA.ORG
