BOTTOM LINE: Theatre 167 recreates this diverse Queens neighborhood with equal parts of intrigue and power.
I have a hard time with Queens: it’s often hard to navigate, its trains aren’t the most reliable, and it has actual houses, which often makes me envious. Yet the community conscious theater company Theatre 167 creates an accessible tale of a multi-ethnic environment bridging tense gaps between its multilingual inhabitants. A tough feat, a worthwhile night of theater nevertheless.
BOTTOM LINE: This three character play is more poetic than it is practical. It is a socially relevant albeit bleak tearjerker about post-Apartide South Africa and it will break your heart into a million pieces.
