I Am New York: Juan Rodriguez transports audiences to a seminal moment in New York history to meet Juan Rodriguez, New York's first immigrant, a free man of mixed ­race origin from La Hispaniola who arrived on a Dutch ship in 1613 & settled in "Mannahatta."

This adaption for teens will include live theater, music, and dance and will invite attendees to become part of the telling of Juan Rodriguez's story.
