Watch the Inauguration at Queens Theatre in the Park

"I have always believed that a theater is first and foremost a place of public assembly."

Those are the words of Jeffrey Rosenstock, Director of Queens Theatre in the Park. I have to agree with Mr. Rosenstock, which is why I am so moved by the fact that Queens Theatre is hosting a free broadcast of the Barack Obama Inauguration on January 20. Rosenstock says: "By hosting this event, we are able to provide a sense of shared community for all who want to celebrate this occasion together." That sounds highly appropriate to me.

Here are the details:
Reservations to this FREE event are required. Please call 718.760.0064 to reserve your FREE tickets. The Theatre lobby will open at 10:30am. Seating will be on a first-come, first-seated basis. The Broadcast begins at 11:30am. As always, parking at Queens Theatre is FREE. For directions or more information please call 718.760.0064 from noon to 6pm, Tuesday through Saturday, or visit www.queenstheatre.org.

All attendees are strongly encouraged to bring canned goods to help hungry neighbors. All contributions will be delivered to the Queens Interfaith Hunger Network.
