Hollywood in Flushing

Here’s your chance to say “Hello Dolly.”
            The wildly-popular revue “Broadway Blockbusters” returns to Flushing Town Hall for three weekends, beginning Friday, July 30 through Saturday, August 14. This year’s theme, “American Fantasy: A Tribute to Hollywood’s Greatest Musicals,” spans the world from the South Pacific to Oklahoma, with stops in Casablanca and even Yonkers, New York.
            Yes, said producer Andrew Koslosky – that’s a setting for “Hello Dolly,” and a role made famous by the likes of Carol Channing, Pearl Bailey and – at Flushing Town Hall – Victoria Schneps-Yunis, publisher of The Queens Courier.
            Koslosky’s foundation gives children and adults with talent but no experience a chance to work with professionals and perhaps go on to a career on the stage.
“This year the Flushing Council on Culture and the Arts (FCCA) agreed to co-present the show,” he said.
“Broadway Blockbusters American Fantasy: A Tribute to Hollywood’s Greatest Musicals” will be performed on Fridays and Saturdays July 30, 31, August 6, 7, 13 and 14 at 8 p.m., and Sunday, August 1 and 8 at 2 p.m.
Flushing Town Hall is located at 137-35 Northern Boulevard, just east of Main Street. Tickets are $30 each for VIP box seats, $20 general admission and $15 for seniors and FCCA members. Call the box office at 718-463-7700, Ext. 222 or visit www.FlushingTownHall.org to purchase tickets or for more information.
