“What I love about the season is its fullness. Whether our community members are looking for joyful family shows, dance that makes your heart beat faster, or thought-provoking and timely works of theatre, they’ll find it,” said Taryn Sacramone, Executive Director of Queens Theatre. “After the past couple of years, I think we all have an appreciation for how uniquely enriching it is to experience live performances. To be in an audience with friends, loved ones, and total strangers—laughing or tearing up or clapping together—it’s good for the soul. That’s what’s ahead of us this year, and it will be beautiful.”
