Queensbury Theatre Announces World Premiere of FOR TONIGHT
Queensbury Theatre is proud to announce the world premiere of For Tonight, playing February 14 - March 3, 2019.
"After looking for the opportunity to produce For Tonight for three years, I am so excited to be directing the world premiere at Queensbury Theatre and to be collaborating with writers Shenelle Salcido, Whitney Rhodes, and Spencer on their new musical featuring all local actors. At Queensbury, we believe in the importance of cultivating new work, and we are grateful to share this beautiful musical about family and home with Houston audiences," said Producing Executive Director, Marley Singletary.
When their parents die of a mysterious illness in their small Welsh village, surviving siblings Thomas, Haydon, and Nettie are forced to fend for themselves. Inspired by the Romani who once shared their home, Haydon heads off to Liverpool, guitar in hand, to find what he's been missing. There he meets a Romani woman, Mirela, who speaks to his wandering soul.
This enchanting story, inspired by the author's great-great-great grandfather's journals, is magically recounted by a band of Romani musicians. It challenges prejudices, family relationships, and what it means to embrace the unknown. Through a riveting indie-rock/folk score, "For Tonight" explores the indelible power of home.
Tickets range from $30-$50. Parking is free for all patrons.
