Book-It presents a Young Audiences New York adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel that chronicles the life of Oscar de Leon, an overweight Dominican boy growing up in Paterson, New Jersey. Oscar is obsessed with science fiction and fantasy novels, falling in love, and the curse that has plagued his family for generations. Performed by artist Elvis Nolasco of “American Crime” fame, this production shows the importance of facing fear with love.
