It’s Smoothies For Us All!
The Theater at St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church


Fresh off successful runs at Dixon Place and Manhattan International Theatre Festival, Bob Katz, “The Folk Punk Woody Allen”, and his rascally mangos present “Quasimango, the Lunchbox of Notre Dame”, a one-man, ten-mango musical, in which our hero, a deformed mango, strives to win the affection of Notre Dame Fighting Irish cheerleader Esmeralda Kelly. As Esmeralda is traded to the never-winning Columbia University Lions, Quasi follows her from South Bend, Indiana to the North Pole to a cataclysmic climax at Columbia’s football stadium. Sung and narrated by a single performer who assumes more than ten roles – nine of them mangos – this combination of folk, blues, rock, and rap tells a story like no other. Refreshments will be served! Party with the mangos!

Uruguayan-American pianist and Music Director Polly Ferman and her acclaimed GlamourTango, Tango in Feminine Form will be in concert on Tuesday, July 29 – 8:00 PM at Queens Theater, 14 United Nations Avenue South, Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens, New York.

GlamourTango is a celebration of tango in feminine form, performed by an international company of world-renowned female musicians, dancers, and vocalists. This unique multimedia music and dance show, conceived by Polly Ferman, and directed by her from the piano, is a tribute to women in Tango, with an all-female cast. It includes clips from 1940’s-era black and white Argentinean films and takes the audience on a musical journey through the 20th century with a different and renewed vision of the role of the woman in Tango.
