Escaping Queens

Escaping Queens is Santa Cruz composer Joe Ortiz’s musical memoir, making its world premiere at Cabrillo Stage on August 10. In the shadow of the Queensboro Bridge lies the heart-rending and comic story of an immigrant family. Through the eyes of a young boy, we meet a zany cast of jubilant characters—a gambling Puerto Rican father, a nurturing Italian mother, a love-crazed teenager, a lurking neighborhood bookie and Doo Wop kids singing on the street corner—who weave the tale of a desperate escape from New York.
