2020-2021 Season

Queens Girl in the World

by Caleen Sinnette Jennings


Mainstage: April 16 – May 9, 2021

Be brought along on the misadventures of bright-eyed, brown-skinned Jacqueline Marie Butler, whose sudden transfer from a protective, middle class late-1950s upbringing in Queens to a progressive, predominantly-Jewish private school in Greenwich Village, adds comical confusion to her already quizzical, fish-out-of-water adolescence. Lively and poignant—and punctuated with the irresistible sound of Motown—Queens Girl in the World tags along for a young woman’s journey of self-discovery, at the onset of Civil Rights-era social change.

Content Advisory: Frank discussions of sexual abuse, substance use, and other adult themes.
