Abingdon Theatre Company has released rehearsal images of their upcoming Off-Broadway production of Queens Girl in the World.

Check out the photos below!

The one woman play, written by Caleen Sinette Jennings, will star Felicia Curry as protagonist, Jacqueline Marie Butler. Curry originated the role in the third installment of the trilogy, Queens Girl: Black in the Green Mountains, at the Everyman Theatre in Baltimore, MD. Queens Girl in the World marks Abingdon's return to the main stage.

Queens Girl in the World explores one young woman's journey of self-discovery at the onset of the Civil Rights-era. The Story chronicles the adventures of bright-eyed, brown-skinned Jacqueline Marie Butler, who suddenly transitions from a protective, middle class upbringing in 1950s Queens to a progressive, predominantly-Jewish private school in Greenwich Village.

Punctuated with the irresistible sounds of Motown, Funny, poignant, and filled with life, you don't want to miss it!

Queens Girl in the World will open for a limited run at Theatre 5 in Theatre Row from April 9th to May 1st, 2022. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here:
