Queens Boulevard Will Stretch Into 2008

News   Queens Boulevard Will Stretch Into 2008 Signature Theatre Company's world premiere production of Charles Mee's Queens Boulevard (the musical) will play an extra week, to Jan. 6, 2008, the Off-Broadway troupe announced.

Mee is Signature's 2007-08 Playwright-in-Residence. The season launched with his Iphigenia 2.0.

Queens Boulevard, set in the borough of Queens, is directed by Davis McCallum and choreographed by Peter Pucci. The production was previously scheduled to end its run Dec. 30, after opening Dec. 3. Previews began Nov. 6 at The Peter Norton Space, 555 W. 42nd Street, between Tenth and Eleventh Avenues.

Through The Signature Ticket Initiative, all regularly-priced tickets ($65) are available for $20 through Dec. 30. Tickets for the extension week (Jan. 2-6) will be $65. The $20 ticket initiative applies to the initial eight-week run of each production for the entire season and continues through Signature’s 20th Anniversary Season (2010-2011).

Here's how Queens Boulevard is billed: "On his wedding day, a new husband is determined to find the perfect gift for his bride. While she waits at home, he searches for the mythical Flower of Heaven and is thrown into a series of colorful adventures on the streets of his neighborhood in Queens, New York. Inspired by a classical Indian dance drama, Queens Boulevard (the musical) celebrates love, community and life."
