Teatro SEA Continuing Three Kings Day Tradition Despite Spike In COVID Cases

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- For Hispanic families, Jan. 6 is Three Kings Day, a holiday featuring parades and other festivities honoring the three kings.

Teatro SEA, the Hispanic young people's theater on the Lower East Side, has been celebrating the holiday for the past 21 years, but the recent spike in COVID cases has forced the organization to make this year's show virtual.
