Did you ever listen to a song written by one of the greats and hear a phrase that made you say, “did I just hear what I think I heard?” In this fun and tuneful show, Mark Nadler explores the theory that Cole Porter, Noel Coward, Larry Hart and Billy Strayhorn meant what you think they meant when they wrote provocative, gay sounding phrases in their lyrics.

Queens Council on the Arts (QCA) and Flushing Town Hall are pleased to present a present a virtual reading of Marcus Yi’s musical Lucky 88, a new theatre piece set in a Flushing food court. The show was selected by local Flushing community members, or “art commissioners,” as part of QCA’sArtist Commissioning Program. Inspired by all of the food courts in Flushing, this new musical uses the food court environment to explore the multi faceted lives of people that the average American might not otherwise get a chance to know.
The show focuses on 3 food stalls and the people that work there: 60 year old Shen Zha Wang at the hand pulled noodle stall struggling to put his son through law school; 50 year old widow Mei Ling Fu at the dumpling stall who is ready to start dating again; and 50 year old Si Ling Xiu at the boba tea stall hiding her cancer diagnosis from her daughter.
