Hernandez to star in ‘Capeman’

Actor to play older Agron in Paul Simon tuner

Ivan Hernandez will topline the Public Theater’s outdoor concert perfs of Paul Simon tuner “The Capeman.”

Hernandez, who starred in the Off Broadway staging of Broadway-bound musical “Yank!,” will play the older incarnation of protag Salvador Agron, a gang member involved in a pair of murders in 1959. Role was originally played by Ruben Blades in the musical’s short-lived preem during the 1997-98 Main Stem season. (A younger version of the lead character, originally played by Marc Anthony, will be portrayed by Anthony Lee Medina.)

Three-night run of concert perfs, set to play Central Park’s Delacorte Theater Aug. 14-16, is helmed by Diane Paulus. Director staged a similiar concert version of “Hair” in the summer of 2007, which eventually resulted in the recent Broadway revival.
