(New York, NY) Friday, April 15th, 2022 – Abingdon Theatre Company (Chad Austin, Artistic Director) releases opening night images of their Off-Broadway production of Queens Girl in the World. The one woman play, written by Caleen Sinette Jennings, stars Felicia Curry as protagonist, Jacqueline Marie Butler. Curry originated the role in the third installment of the trilogy, Queens Girl: Black in the Green Mountains, at the Everyman Theatre in Baltimore, MD. Queens Girl in the World marks Abingdon’s return to the main stage.
Queens Girl in the World explores one young woman’s journey of self-discovery at the onset of the Civil Rights era. The Story chronicles the adventures of bright-eyed, brown-skinned Jacqueline Marie Butler, who suddenly transitions from a protective, middle-class upbringing in 1950s Queens to a progressive, predominantly-Jewish private school in Greenwich Village.
Punctuated with the irresistible sounds of Motown, Funny, poignant, and filled with life, you don’t want to miss it!
Stars of Off-Broadway and Broadway came out Sunday, April 10th, 2022, to celebrate the return of Abingdon’s 29th season!
Queens Girl in the World runs at Theatre 5 in Theatre Row from April 9th to May 8th, 2022. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here:
