“After a long hiatus due to the pandemic, BHS is pleased to reopen our doors with this exciting evening of magic and music,” said executive director Barbara Speedling.

Enjoy a super-talented, all-star cast of Queens- and Brooklyn-based actors performing favorites from “Les Misérables,” “Guys and Dolls,” “Company” and the Great American Songbook. The opening act, Magician Apollo Riego, will make your evening extra magical.

“As we move toward the fall and a full schedule of public programs and events, we are delighted to be returning to our education and historical programming. This year, we hope to broaden our community network, offering new and unique programs in culture and the arts that reflect the contemporary fabric of our community. Following our Broadway event, we will host our Passport Concert Series, a musical trip around the world. The first four concerts will highlight music from China, Greece, Latin America and Nigeria,” Speedling said.

During the pandemic, BHS expanded its virtual programming to include adaptations of its educational programs for local schools, a concert series and other archival offerings from its extensive collection of local historical artifacts and documents.

“We intend to continue building our online presence, allowing us to reach new audiences and make our programming accessible to more people,” Speedling added.

Built in 1887, the Gothic Revival-style castle is a New York City designated landmark and is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
