PARK PLAYS - Queens Theatre

An evening of short plays exploring the world of Flushing Meadows Corona Park. From the Panorama to the Playground for All Children, the 1939 World's Fair to the 2016 US Open, "Park Plays" takes the audience on a journey celebrating the bold, inclusive spirit of the park which Queens Theatre calls home.

"Lauren Yee ventures into Robert Moses territory with “What We Once Were.” Set in the Queens Museum’s Panorama of the City of New York, it’s nicely acted, particularly by Bartley Booz as a baffled new hire."               -Laura Collins-Huges - NEW YORK TIMES
