With a new cast and revised staging, Santa Cruz composer Joe Ortiz's musical memoir Escaping Queens returns after it's sell-out world premier at Cabrillo Stage in 2012. In the shadow of Queensboro Bridge lies the heat-rending and comic story of an immigrant family. Through the eyes of a young boy, we meet a zany cast of jubilant characters --a gambling Puerto Rican father, a nurturing Italian mother, a love-crazed teenager, a lurking neighborhood bookie and Doo Wop kids singing on the street corner-- who weave the tale of a desperate escape from New York. Contains adult language. Tickets may also be purchased at the VAPA Box Office located outside the Crocker Theater beginning June 18th (hours are Tuesdays - Fridays, 12-6PM and Saturdays 12-4PM). Showtimes: 8:00PM: July 24 (Preview), 25 (Opening Night), 27; August 1, 2, 3, 8, 9, 10, 15, 16, 17. 3:00PM: July 28; August 4, 11 (Post Show Discussion after performance), 18.
