Join APAC for an evening of songs and stories that explore and celebrate the immigrant experience. The evening will feature a mix of monologues and original music — all based on newspaper articles, original stories, and verbatim interviews with actual residents of Western Queens! APAC Research & Interview Team members conducted interviews for the cabaret, which were focused on telling a wide range of stories from immigrants as well as first and second-generation Americans living in our diverse borough of Queens.

Research & Interview Team: Eva Casey, Lisa Huberman, Kasha Pazdar, and Shayla Thomas.
