DC-7: The Roberto Clemente Story
In DC-7, a play with music, three of the most influential characters in Clemente’s life meet at his funeral to share their memories. Matino (Clemente’s brother), Vera (his widow) and Ramiro Martínez (a close friend and journalist), reminisce about their life with Clemente. Their stories transport the audience from Clemente’s early years in Puerto Rico to his 18-year tenure with the Pirates.
