Freaknik - The Creek and The Cave
April 14, 2018 - Queens

Starting in 1982, the city of Atlanta threw an annual party called "Freaknik" which essentially became the largest black spring break party in the country. The party became so big and wild that the city shut it down for good in 1996, but we're all in luck, because comedians Andy Sandford, Noah Gardenswartz and Steve Forrest are bringing Freaknik back, and they're bringing it to Long Island City! "Comedy Freaknik" will be a lot like the original Freaknik, except it's going to happen once a month, and it will be a comedy show hosted by three white guys. That's basically the ONLY difference.

Much Ado About Nothing - Queens Theatre
Through April 14, 2018 - Corona

A saucy and sparkling battle of wits. Love and victory are in the air at the start of one of Shakespeare's most beloved comedies. When Claudio, a young gentleman and soldier, swears his love to the charming Hero -- Signor Benedick, a bachelor, swears by his beard that he will never marry. Little does Benedick know that he may have, at last, met his match in Hero's erce-witted cousin, Beatrice. And little does the town of Messina know that it is about to be rocked by a scandal that will take a miracle to put right. Titan Co-founders and real-life husband and wife team, Lenny Banovez and Laura Frye, take on Shakespeare's spirited, sparring duo in Much Ado About Nothing.
