Event Details

Listen Up is launching our 2022 season with a familiar face who has an amazing story of breaking barriers! Sonia Manzano – who you may know as Sesame Street’s Maria, a character she played for 44 years – will be coming in person to Indianapolis for this Listen Up presented by Lumina Foundation and Plews Shadley Racher & Braun. WFYI invites you to join us on Tuesday, May 24 at 7:30 p.m. at the Schrott Center for the Arts on Butler University’s campus.

Sonia will share insights from where she started as a poor Puerto Rican girl growing up in the South Bronx to being one of the most influential Latinas in television. She will also discuss the impact that television has on children as they are growing up. Sonia’s career has allowed her to expand representation and education in the media, from her work on Sesame Street, the Casagrandes, Law & Order to her current role as executive producer, writer and voice actor on Alma’s Way, which launched last year on PBS.
