BWW TV Exclusive: Meet the Creators of QUEEN OF THE NIGHT- Spotlight on Simon Hammerstein

‚Äč

Queen of the Night, the epicurean extravaganza created by king of immersive entertainment and Sleep No More producer Randy Weiner, has earned a spot on the list of must-see New York City attractions of the summer as the city's sexiest dinner party. Originally created to celebrate the reopening of the legendary nightspot Simon Hammerstein's Diamond Horseshoe (235 W. 46th Street, NYC), the critically acclaimed fusion of cuisine, theater, circus, and nightlife plays through August 31 by popular demand.

BroadwayWorld's Richard Ridge stopped by the Diamond Horseshoe during a recent rehearsal, and below, you can check out a special interview with creator Simon Hammerstein.

In 1938, Billy Rose opened Diamond Horseshoe at the Paramount Hotel featuring the greatest performers, top vaudeville acts, and the most beautiful showgirls in the world. The New York Times called Diamond Horseshoe the "gayest frolic on Broadway" and it remained a vibrant, groundbreaking venue until it shuttered in 1951, where it remained vacant, until December 31, 2013 for the grand re-opening of the reimagined space by nightlife impresarioSimon Hammerstein.

Queen of the Night plays Tuesdays through Sundays beginning at 7:30 p.m. and tiered ticket prices begin at $140. For tickets, visit queenofthenightnyc.com.
