Hillcrest Reunion

Had such a great time at the reunion.  Can't hardly sit still this morning!  I told Papito, "Sit right here. Let me TEACH you some history.  Listen to this!  This is called a RECORD."  

Papito is trying not to laugh as I click play on Youtube.  

"Now listen here, Papito.  And Vic, sientate tu tambien."  

So they listen to THIS...

Jennifer Lopez - Same Girl

So as I made it through the 20,000 people, down to the Bruckner for a quick stop at Taco Bell mesmerized cuz I saw JLO, right here in New York, in the Bronx.  I took the BUS there. I won the tickets from another Bronx superstar- Jimmy Rodriguez from Don Coqui's restaurant, @doncoquimy head was spinning and spinning.

I mean, I remember way back meeting Jimmy and remember him talking about his yacht.

And I remember Fat Joe hanging at Orchard Beach as if he wasn't no mega star and everyone saying what's up to him.

And I remember one of J-Lo's video producers that I knew from high school, that I bumped

Ya Jenny Llego!

In one of the video montages while she did a quick costume change, a little girl is playing dress up and JLo's voice-over says she remembers watching old movies with her mother and she came out and sang 2 ballads: "Do You Know Where You're Going To" from the Diana Ross' "Mahogany", and the other from no other than the incomparable  Barbra Streisand: "My Man" from "Funny Girl."  That is barrio balls! to go up there and even attempt to sing anything from Barbra Streisand!  But this is Jennifer Lopez and she can do it all!

The third ballad in a row was Selena's "No Me Queda Mas", where she was teary-eyed and at

JLo's Homecoming - Concert Review

Jennifer Lopez came back home to her beloved Bronx for an all out extravaganza of a concert.  The tickets were free but the concert did not skimp on a single detail! 

The stage was equipped with jumbotrons, a lower level where she disappeared into, another level where she was raised up to, multi mechanical cameras that moved around in all directions, graffitti set, a depiction of the 6 train, smoke and popping of fireworks, a laser show, and enough confetti to rival any tickertape parade! A total celebration, complete with some of her friends: French Montana, Ja Rule, and of course, no Bronx party can be complete without Fat Joe. 

The concert started with an intro of the song by Sklar Grey slowly and sweetly:  I'm coming home, I'm coming home, tell the world that I'm coming home....

And did she ever!  She came back home brand new with a brand new single that she started

My SuperHero Roberto Clemente

In 2011 Teatro SEA produced the Off-Broadway Musical about the life of Roberto Clemente, DC-7:The Roberto Clemente Story (Winner of 14 Awards) for adults.  DC-7 was so successful, we were inspired to create a new bilingual musical for children, My Superhero Roberto Clemente, which will open on May 24, 2014 at 3:00pm.

We believe that our children need heros, and they will find a hero in Roberto Clemente through his humanitarian work, leadership and his courge to face adverse and challenging situations.

In this new Musical, Bobby and his friends discover the super powers that make Roberto Clemente a Superhero. The life of the baseball great, Roberto Clemente Walker, comes to life in this charming heart-felt musical, that features a brilliant music score by Alejandro Zuleta, spectacular choreography by Danny Soto, and animations and puppetry by our master puppeteer, Jose Lopez.

My Superhero Roberto Clemente draws on the journey of Bobby and his friends who discover that Roberto Clemente is a Superhero, after learning that he was the first Hispanic ever inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, from his humble origins to his record-breaking career with the Major Leagues. As a sports star, civil rights advocate, humanitarian, and family man, Clemente defied all odds and triumphed, forging a legacy of motivation and excellence that is still much alive today.  This bilingual musical play is a not-to-be-missed tribute to one of the the greatest Latin heroes of all times!

The show stars Jesus Martinez, Jorge Castilla, Christopher Williams, Ann Flanigan,  Miranda Childrers,and Alan González, 

Roberto Clemente (1934-72) was one of the most beloved figures in the history of the MLB. He was the first Latino to win a World Series as a rookie (1960.) He also won the MVP Award (1966) and the World Series MVP Award (1971.) He finished his career with over 3,000 hits and 12 Golden Glove Awards. He was posthumously inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame following his untimely death on December 31st, 1972 from a plane crash while traveling to deliver aid to earthquake victims in Nicaragua.
