Though it may not seem that way lately, Queens is not all about political corruption. It’s also a wonderful place to live, work and play — one that deserves to be celebrated in many ways, as it so often is.
One way it’s being celebrated this weekend is through the original musical “Let’s Hear It For Queens!” The play is written and directed by Mark Lord of Forest Hills, a retired teacher and frequent contributor to this newspaper.
Several of our staffers saw the show last weekend and really enjoyed it. If you weren’t there at the Free Synagogue of Flushing, you’ll get your chance to learn some local history and have some fun this weekend, when the final two performances run. Showtimes are listed in this week’s Chronicle calendar, and in a separate article on the play.
Lord and everyone involved with the show are giving it their all, and would love to see you in the audience. Go celebrate the unique magic of our borough with them while supporting local theater.
