QUEENS GIRL IN THE WORLD


By Caleen Sinnette Jennings
Directed by Eleanor Holdridge
Featuring Dawn Ursula

It’s summer 1962 in Queens, New York. The sounds of doo-wop music fill the night, the Civil Rights movement is stirring and 12-year-old Jacqueline Marie Butler is on the verge of adulthood. When Jacqueline’s parents abruptly transfer her to a progressive school in Greenwich Village where she is one of only four black students, she is thrust out of her comfort zone. As her circle expands to include friends from every walk of life, Jacqueline discovers a new city and a whole new world.

"A sweet-spirited solo show" and Dawn Ursula has "star-quality brilliance" - Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
