STORY
of Escaping Queens

Joe Ortiz's musical memoir, Escaping Queens, takes place in the shadow of the Queensboro Bridge. This funny, edgy, ultimately hopeful story, centers around an Italian/Puerto Rican family trying to escape the chaos and poverty of New York housing-project life. Mama rules the home with a nurturing wooden spoon but cannot control her charismatic, gambling husband. Sooner or later something has to give—and it does. The production’s original music draws on the same richness of traditions that the family itself does: Latin beats, Sicilian ballads, do-wop numbers on the street corner and radio hits reminiscent of 1950s era New York.

Here you can watch our 2012 Production of Escaping Queens on December 27, 3:00pm and January 1, 7:30pm. We hope you enjoy this look back at one of our favorite original works. It will be preceded by a pre-show discussion with the creators in Episode 14: The Stars Of Cabrillo Stage. WATCH NOW!

Due to Covid-19, all events will be planned with an eye to safety and well-being of guests and staff.  All events are subject to change.
