Two Gentlemen of Verona - Opening Weekend 8/11-8/13

This weekend, Curious Frog’s FREE summer Shakespeare opens in Queens with the comedy, Two Gentlemen of Verona. We’ll be bringing you back to 1983 for some fun in the feathered-hair world of shoulder pads and converse shoes.

Join us for our preview tomorrow, Friday 8/12 at 6pm on Astoria Park’s Great Lawn, near the water. When you get off the N/Q train at Ditmars Blvd in Astoria, walk down 23rd Avenue until you reach 19th St. If you enter from where 19th St meets 23rd Ave, go down the hill and you should see us there. Telltale sign would be the streamers and balloons to say farewell to Valentine for his trip away from Verona!

We perform again, same spot, for our official OPENING the next day, Saturday 8/13, at 4pm. Remember to bring a blanket or a low chair and plenty of hydration!

Looking for good picnic fare? We recommend Fresh Start for amazing and unique organic sandwiches, produce, and little tubs of picnic fare—fowl- and vegan-friendly. When you get off the N/Q train at Ditmars Blvd in Astoria, walk down 23rd Avenue and it’ll be on your right, at 29-13 23rd Ave. We love their acai drinks especially!

Or, since you are in a Greek neighborhood, Agnanti will totally make you say “Opa!” with their truly authentic fare, at the corner of 19th St and Ditmars Blvd. Here is their menu and phone number, so you can order ahead and not be late for our play. Their tzatziki is to die for!

Coming on Sunday at 4pm instead? Sure! We’ll be at Queensbridge Park in Long Island City on that day. Easy to get to as well, since the entrance to this smaller river park is at Vernon Blvd and 41st Ave. The F train will bring you to us, then walk toward the East River, or use to find your way from wherever you’ll be starting out from. This particular venue isn’t as close to our favorite dinner haunts as usual, so try to bring your picnic fare with you so you can munch away while you laugh at our antics!

See you this weekend! Remember to check our phone line at 646-450-2878 if it looks like rain.
