About the Company: Queens Shakespeare, Inc.
Founded in 2005, Queens Shakespeare is a blend of professional and educational theatre which produces 2 full-length classical plays each year in Queens County, New York. The aim of the company is to engage the entire community in its theatrical projects with professional actors in leading roles who will act as mentors for both students and community members
Created by Rachel A. Shaw with original music by Mark Lazeski. Glenn Girón directs and choreographs a cast of six, including Rachel Sheen, Ray Fanara, Laura Leigh Carroll, Adam Chisnall, Chandler Converse, and Linnea Gregg, with a special appearance by Chad Rosenthal (Bway: Mamma Mia!) as the Sandman.
“God of Marz has become a commentary on human pride, vanity, feminism and our need to feel important, because I think big egos (mine included) are funny,” stated playwright Rachel Shaw. “Setting the play in a space world with kooky characters, nightclub-style lighting and an original soundtrack inspired by “A Clockwork Orange” reflects the absurdity of today’s egocentric ideologies. It’s a wild ride!”
From Director Glenn Girón
“For me, theater is here to straighten out a community's moral compass; sometimes by holding up a mirror to the audience, sometimes by showing them the lives of people they'd otherwise never take a moment to understand. I like a good farce because if there's heart to it, you're laughing, and laughing and then BOOM! A lesson; A question you never would have asked yourself, and your forced to wrestle with the answer. I think God of Marz asks some questions most wouldn't stop to ask, and in my 'adaptation' I'm infusing some heart into it to keep the audience close to the characters while still working hard to maintain the fun, sexy, sarcastic vibe that the tech and the music and the dancing evokes! It's a sexy, absurd riot! But one that hopefully makes ya think!”
