In DC-7, a bilingual musical with English and Spanish book and lyrics, three of the most influential characters in Clemente's life meet at his funeral to share their memories. Their stories transport the audience to Clemente's early years in Puerto Rico, his time with the Montreal Royals and his 18-year tenure with the Pirates. This musical also dramatically depicts the era of the Civil Rights Movement and how it affected his life as a Black Hispanic.
Through all his trials and tribulations, Clemente triumphed becoming a legend on and off the field. This new musical is a dedication to a hero whose extraordinary life continues to inspire and touch lives.
