It all started one cold February day in 2011. Our first meeting was at Sweet Afton (an Astoria fave), where we chugged IPAs and stuffed our mouths with fried pickles, all while dreaming up a way to bring local Queens artists together. We tossed around lots of ideas; some great, some crazy ambitious, and some just crazy. We shared frustrations on how everything theatre-wise seemed to be happening in Manhattan and Brooklyn and we felt it was about time for the artists in Queens to stand up and unite.
Since that first meeting, we’ve had several more. Every meeting involved lots of planning and lots of booze.
Now we’re finally here. On August 15, 2012, we’ll be having our first mixer/kickoff celebration at the Alewife. We’re thrilled to have finally arrived at this stage, and we’re equally thrilled to see (with your help) what we come up next.
