“Lord, what fools these mortals be!”

Fresh from their critically acclaimed, sold out productions of Twelfth Night, Much Ado About Nothing, Euripides’ The Bacchae, and Macbeth, The Queens Players returns for our debut performance in the newly redesigned Little Theatre with a magical, Night Circus reimagining of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Director Illana Stein’s vision of the dichotomy between the monochromatic mortal world of Athens and the black-light drenched, twilight infused circus-realm of the fairies will bring audiences right “into the tent” so to speak. True love will be tested, two worlds will collide, and mischief will be made!    

"Whenever I think of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, I immediately think about a line from one of Puck’s last speeches “I am sent with broom before, to sweep the dust behind the door.” I imagine Puck with a broom cleaning up the mess, erasing all of the visions, and leaving us to wonder what did we just witness?  Our wildest dream? A Nightmare? A mixture of the two? It also reminds me that theatre is ephemeral, fleeting, and magical. One second it is there and a second later, poof it is gone. I wanted to further explore this idea and take audiences on an invited, exhilarating journey to the unfamiliar, their own private ‘Night Circus’. A world controlled by the faeries. Within the tent each night, a story unfolds of mayhem, disguise, fantasy, and love. A world of extremes. Our lovers escape sharp Athenian rule and find themselves running away to the circus. This play is not at all fun and games because once you are lured into the tent, there is no easy way out. After all, there is a ringmaster leading this adventure. What lurks beneath the tent? Accept our invitation and step into the world of the unknown.” -Illana Stein

Antigone  | Open: 03/12/09 Close: 03/28/09
Antigone, doomed daughter of ill-fated Oedipus and Jocasta, is forced to complete “the ceremony of pain and dishonor and disaster and shame” willed by the Gods. Her brothers fought for the throne of Thebes, and each fell on the others’ sword. One was deemed a hero, the other, traitor. Her uncle, Kreon, who has claimed Thebes in the wake of the tragedy, has decreed death to the person who blesses the traitor’s body. Antigone, who has made an oath to her fallen brother, defies the will of the tyrant and consecrates his corpse. The enraged Kreon demands Antigone pay the ultimate price. This is against the advice of the great prophet, who has foretold doom for the family, and the nation if Kreon will not relent. The life of Antigone, and the fate of all of Thebes is hopelessly woven into Kreon’s wounded pride.

Using a variety of theatrical styles, director Greg Cicchino’s production of Antigone will explore the androgyny of its characters and examine how circumstances can force people to shatter stereotypical gender roles. With an innovative set design and a cast featuring Queens Players company members Dara Tiller, Katie Braden, Ira Sargent, Amanda Adili and Tiffany Turner alongside guest actors David Doumeng, Chris Duncan this will be an Antigone unlike any other.

As You Like It  | Open: 08/20/09 Close: 09/05/09
Magic happens in the forest. In Shakespeare’s “As You Like It,” young lovers Orlando and Rosalind each are forced to flee from court with nothing but their lives. When they seek safety in the Forest of Arden, though, they discover a world where people aren’t always who they seem to be; and love, while still confusing, can be simpler and more pure than in the world they left. Will any find what they seek in Arden?

"THE BACCHAE" SEDUCES AT THE SECRET THEATRE THIS SPRING

The Queens Players and Femme Fatale Theater present Euripides’ timeless tragedy The Bacchae, in a production dripping with a sense of foreboding dark comedy this March 28th through April 13th at The Secret Theatre in Long Island City, Queens.

Severed heads and cross-dressing kings populate this mysterious masterwork while this production will incorporate a male chorus and original music. 

The cast also includes Diana Stahl, John C. Hume, Stan Buturla, Harlan Alford, John Graham, Devon Buchanan, Michael DeBartolo and Alex Kveton. 

The production features scenic and lighting design is by Jonathan Cottle, original music by Ryan Marino, choreography by Teff Nichols and dramaturgy by Charles Baker and is being co-developed by Femme Fatale Co-Founder Stephen Gribbin.

Cinderella: An English Pantomine  | Open: 12/11/05 Close: 12/18/05
Once upon a time, long ago a classic story that has been told by various cultures from East to West became the embodiment of the outrageous styles and fashions of the reign of Louis XIV, The Sun King. During that time, Charles Perrault took the story and fashioned it into the story that we recognise and know.

The new version by Richard Mazda gives the classic tale a new spin. The Ugly Sisters are played by men, Prince Charming and his servant, Buttons are played by a girls playing male character and Dobbin the Panto horse morph's into the King and Queen. Prince Charming seems a little fastidious and obsessed with shoes. The Fairy Godmother is a wanna be rapper whose reluctant use of her magic wand helps Cinderella bag her camp Prince.

Lysistrata: Revenging The Bush  | Open: 10/05/05 Close: 10/22/05
What if women used their bush to defeat President Bush? What if men found out that they had to withdraw from Iraq in order to cum? Aristophanes taught us that sex was more powerful than bloodlust and The Queens Players' production of Lysistrata: Revenging the Bush proves that it is still true today. Dildos, lingerie, and cunning linguistics make it clear that sometimes sex is theanswer to violence.

“By the pricking of my thumb…Something wicked this way comes!”

After critically acclaimed productions this season of Twelfth Night, Much Ado About Nothing, and Euripides’ The Bacchae, the Queens Players returns to the Secret Theatre main stage with a bloody and soul haunting retelling of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth.

Director Alberto Bonilla’s (director of our smash hit productions of Twelfth Night, The Three Sisters, and Servant of Two Masters) vision for this Druidic world of myth, magic, and warriors takes audiences through a whirlwind exploration of the dark, Celtic, and supernatural forces that cut right to the raw heart of Shakespeare’s classic tale. Witness the noble corrupted into the bestial, ambition convert to guilt-ridden madness, and heroes rise from the ashes of despair. All the while the powers of what was, what is, and what will be rule over all and we learn that no man is more powerful than fate.   

Featuring: Alexander Stine, Annie Grier, Darby Hannon, Elizabeth Inghram*, Jim Anderson, Joel Dommel, John Cormier, John Zdrojeski, Jonathan Emerson, Juliette Biry, Kate Gunther, Marc LeVasseur*, Marcela de Luna, Melissa Macleod Herion, Peter Collier, R.

Much Ado About Nothing  | Open: 02/14/13 Close: 03/02/13
The Queens Players’ and Secret Theatre's Richard Mazda [Edward II, MacBeth, Othello, Knight of the Burning Pestle, Dr Faustus], once again brings a unique style and concept to a beloved Shakespeare piece, MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING with a fantastically talented team of designers; Beth Williams, Helen Ammon, Casey Rowe and John Michael Creenan helping to create a unique Trash Period world who with an extremely talented cast will bring the funny in William Shakespeare's beloved comedy. Our Benedict is noted Actor/Director/Teacher, Alberto Bonilla* who collaborated with the director and hosted Clown workshops for the cast. Although there are no red noses, the deep insights that clown elements bring to the show are self evident.


Balthazar is played by Jamey Grisham* who is also our musical director. The songs and music fuse Elizabethan madrigal, bluegrass and classical elements

Mazda's Much Ado takes us to a street strewn with boxes where Leonato's cardboard dwelling is the best on the street and where everyday objects are casually thrown away.

In our repurposed world everyday scrap becomes a crucial letter and the abstracted background compliments dazzling verbal duels between Benedick and Beatrice. The language of the play reveals hilarious double-entendre's that drop at a cracking pace which shows us Shakespeare's keen sense of humor.

The Queens Players’ production of MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING features noted Director/Actor Alberto Bonilla* [Benedick/Clown consultant], Rebecca Hirota [Beatrice], Connie Castanzo, Andy Derado, Sabrina Friedman-Seitz, Jamey Grisham*, Josh Laird, Cari McHugh, Blake Merriman, John C. Nagy III, Joseph Parks*, Cliff Miller, Ralph Petrarca*, Blaine Smith, Alexander Stine, C.L Weatherstone & Megan Greener.

Saint Joan  | Open: 10/28/10 Close: 11/13/10
 

In 1431 Jeanne d’Arc – a young peasant girl who led an army and crowned a king – was burned at the stake as a heretic. Afterwards, in the smoldering ashes, one thing remained untouched – her heart. In 1920 she was made a saint. In 1923 Bernard Shaw took her extraordinary story and brilliantly retold it, revealing it also as the beginning of a nationalism which dictated the very make-up of Europe until our own 20th-century apocalypse, World War I. Shaw’s play moves between the France of Joan’s War and WWI, asking all the while: if Joan were alive today, would we recognize her – and would we listen?

Shaw himself referred to the heroine of what many consider his greatest play as “the most notable Warrior Saint in the Christian calendar, and the queerest fish among the eccentric worthies of the Middle Ages.”  Born circa 1412 and burned for heresy, witchcraft, and sorcery at the age of 19, Joan of Arc was canonized as a saint in 1920. Shaw’s 1923 play was instrumental in earning him the Nobel Prize two years later. Given his spectacular reputation as a freethinker and assassin of sacred cows, many feared that Shaw would satirize Joan or portray her as a fraud. Instead, without romanticizing her as a victim or tragic heroine, he paints her as a human being of unparalleled vision, courage, confidence, and imagination.

Rarely fully produced, due to the large number of male principal roles and complexity of the female lead, this Queens Players production will feature a full cast of 24, featuring Shelleen Kostabi in the famously challenging role of Joan, along with Bruce Barton, Logan Riley Bruner, David Douglas, Robert Eigen, Jonathan Emerson, Jaike Foley-Schultz, Cory Hibbs, Gary Lizardo, Graciany Miranda, Tim Moore, Alex Panich, Kurt Roediger, Greer Samuels, Josh Silverman, Camilla Skoglie, Eric Stephenson, Eric William Whitehead, Dalles Wilie and Jonathan Zipper.

The production is directed by Ken Neil Hailey, director of past QP productions of “The Importance of Being Earnest,” the multi-run hit, “Vampire Lesbians of Sodom & Sleeping Beauty or Coma” and our earlier Shaw production, “Mrs. Warren’s Profession.” This is Mr. Hailey’s 4th production of a Shaw work.

Enhancing the raw-space production will be costumes by Thomas Kleinert, resident costumer for the company and an original incidental music score by Cory Hibbs.

Written in Elizabethan English The Knight of the Burning Pestle is pure good times and even after 400 years still makes a great comedy even for the most contemporary audience.

 

Director Richard Mazda muses that The Knight of The Burning Pestle is arguably “the funniest play of all the Elizabethan and Jacobean comedies”. The Knight of The Burning Pestle’s is a satire on plays, playwriting and actors. Sir Francis Beaumont frequently collaborated with Shakespeare’s successor , Fletcher and this groundbreaking play is also the first play to feature ‘audience’ characters breaking the fourth wall.

An unwitting theatre troupe gets more than they bargained for when an Honorable Citizen Grocer George and his Wife, Nell, attend the theatre for the first time they manage to pervert the intentions of the actors to present, The London Merchant. The grocer and his wife demand to see a play about a Grocer-Errant battling bloodthirsty giants, wooing exotic princesses, and leading armies into battle. They insist their apprentice Rafe should play the lead role and then begin to come up with fanciful plotlines and scenarios without pause.The players do their best to maintain their dignity and continue their play as they are forced to perform impromptu scenes with the Rafe, the quixotic knight.

 

Director Richard Mazda says “this is the funniest theatre piece written during this time period and everyone who enjoys classical theatre or who is a fan of theatre in general simply must see this show.” Mazda incorporates puppetry, dance, and traces of 20th Century British comedy Benny Hill, Tommy Cooper, Monty to the classical text and the results are hilarious.

The Taming Of The Shrew  | Open: 06/10/10 Close: 06/26/10
The Taming of the Shrew follows Katherine, a free spirit, thrust into a sect of men in need of submissive women. Set in the heart of the FLDS (Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints), this cunning new production of The Taming of the Shrew challenges the puritanical confinement of women still in existence in 21st Century America. Shakespeare’s play has been interpreted in many different ways; the play's apparent misogynistic elements have become the subject of considerable controversy, particularly among modern audiences and readers. It has nevertheless been adapted numerous times for stage, screen, opera, and musical theatre; perhaps the most famous adaptations being Cole Porter's Kiss Me, Kate and the film 10 Things I Hate About You.

The Queens Players will be presenting Three Sisters by Anton Chekhov opening on March 9th Directed by Alberto Bonilla who last directed Raft of The Medusa and The Servant To Two Masters at The Secret. Coming off his widely successful North of Providence and Dolores, which Martin Denton called, "raw, with wrenching ambition... Bonilla's production of both pieces is exemplary". Alberto's Three Sisters explores the fear of being forgotten and the hope of the future. Bonilla says, "What draws me so close to these characters is their fallible natures. The fact that Chekhov has written such vulnerable and hopeful, yet flawed people against a background of change. We see ourselves, or parts of ourselves, in every one of them and rise and fall with their hopes and dreams. Like a family portrait deteriorating before our eyes, we long for what we had and pray for a better tomorrow."

Three Sistersby Russian author and playwright Anton Chekhov, perhaps partially inspired by the situation of the three Brontë sisters, but most probably by the three Zimmermann sisters in Perm. It was written in 1900 and first produced in 1901.

A year after the death of their father, an army officer, the Moscow-bred sisters Prosorov--Olga, Masha and Irina--are finding life drab and increasingly hopeless in a Russian provincial town. Only the proximity of a nearby artillery post and the company of its officers make their existence bearable.

Twelfth Night  | Open: 08/02/12 Close: 08/18/12
After critically acclaimed productions last season of The Three Sisters, Servant of Two Masters and Ibsen’s Ghosts the Queens players returns to the Secret Theatre stage in this hilarious, groundbreaking new production of William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night.

 Director Alberto Bonilla (who brought new meaning to the word funny with his sell out production of Servant of Two Masters) calls the production “a celebration of the theatre” in which the audience themselves is one of the actors and the whole performance space is part of the stage.

 Using elements of clowning, improvisation, and audience interaction allows the cast to explore this classic tale of illusions of love, mistaken identity, and the masks we all wear in   joyous new ways.

 In short you'll laugh, you'll cry…and then you’ll probably laugh again really…really…hard.

 P.S. to kick off our season and begin our nightly celebration with a bang we will be offering a special Twelfth Night Cocktail included with the purchase of your ticket to help get the party started!
