This is the Army: 75th Anniversary Concert

On July 4, 1942, Irving Berlin’s all-soldier musical This is the Army opened on Broadway before touring the US, making an Oscar-winning Hollywood film, playing the London Palladium, and visiting the front lines of World War II.

This Veterans Day, join Feinstein’s/54 Below, and an all-star Broadway cast, as we remember how this troupe of Broadway soldiers became the first racially integrated US Army unit, had openly gay soldiers who risked military prison, and avoided brushes with death as they brought their vaudeville show to the war’s most dangerous combat zones.

Featuring songs like “This is the Army, Mr. Jones,” “Ladies of the Chorus,” “Oh, How I Hate to Get Up in the Morning,” and “God Bless America.”

Directed and Produced by Jason Ferguson.

Boundless Tales: Reading

Join us for our first reading featuring Queens-based emerging writers with Victoria Adler, Jamey Hansen, Jason Ferguson, Kelly Jean Fitzsimmons, Katie Flanagan, and Claire Zajdel.

Founded in 2011, Boundless Tales: A Series for Emerging Writers gives a platform to the best emerging writers in Queens, NY, the city’s largest and most diverse borough. In this quarterly series held at The Local in Long Island City, we showcase writers who are passionate about their writing and want to share their work in a public forum. Each night, five or six readers are given about ten minutes to read their work, with time throughout the night to connect with other members of the Queens literary community.
