El Coquí Espectacular & the Bottle of Doom – Play – Centerstage Theatre

Elevator Thoughts (aka Tweet): El Coquí Espectacular and the Bottle of Doom play at Centerstage Theatre. Puerto Rican (super?) hero battles with gentrification, ethnic pandering/commercialization, and racial identity in NYC. #superhero #comic #hispanic #latino #Latin #PuertoRican

Synopsis from the Theatre: Comic-book-artist Alex combats writer’s block by secretly dressing up as his creation, El Coquí Espectacular. Alex’s brother Joe struggles to fit in at work. And Yesica, the curious photographer, is following El Coqui around New York City. Together, they fight supervillains while hatching a plan to prove themselves to the world at the Puerto Rican Day Parade! El Coquí Espectacular and the Bottle of Doom is a new theatrical extravaganza that explores the ways we define our heritage, our family, and ourselves.
