Raúl Juliá: From San Juan to the Big Apple

Originally published on PBS SoCal 

In this exclusive clip of “Raúl Juliá: The World’s a Stage,” a special co-presentation of “VOCES” and “American Masters,” actor Orson Bean recounts his discovery of Raúl in the early 1960’s in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. Blown away by Raúl’s performance in a variety show at the Hotel El Convento, he introduced himself to the young singer and advised him to take his talents to New York City. Featuring a clip of Raúl performing on The Original Amateur Hour with Ted Mack.
