Summer Stage in Queens!

Posted on July 14, 2010. Filed under: Astoria, Free, LIC, Music & Dance, Outdoor Recreation, Theater | Tags: , |

I remember waiting in line for hours under the hot steamy sun to see  Sonic Youth (among many other boated old punksters)  in Central Park’s Summer Stage. Now, I don’t even have to leave the neighborhood. For the next two weeks Summer Stage is setting the scene in Long Island City & Queens! Enjoy hip hop, theater, jazz, opera and more this side of the East River. Here are some highlights from this season’s schedule below. For a full Summer Stage schedule, click here.
