Café Con Leche Events
CAFÉ CON LECHE BRINGS PEOPLE TOGETHER
Café Con Leche uses food to build community. It is a place for the Pittsburgh Latino community to connect, promote Latino culture in Pittsburgh and be a safe space for dialogue and creative problem solving. The name, Café con Leche (coffee with milk in Spanish) refers to the Puerto Rican tradition of serving coffee to household guests.
In "Clemente: The Legend of 21" three of the most influential people in Clemente's life - his older brother Matino, his wife Vera and his friend and sports journalist Ramiro Martínez- meet at his funeral to reminisce about their life with him. Their stories transport the audience from Clemente's early years in Puerto Rico, through his 18 year tenure with the Pirates to the tragic accident on New Year's Eve.
This musical journey also depicts the era of the Civil Right Movement and how it affected his life as a Black Latino. Throughout all his trials and tribulations Clemente triumphed becoming a legend on and off the field. "Clemente: The Legend of 21" is heartfelt tribute to a hero whose extraordinary life continues to inspire and touch lives.
The VIP ticket includes a premium seat in the first six rows and exclusive access to a post-performance meet and greet with the cast. Limited availability.
