Spaghetti Dinner in Queens

Having attended Charcuterie Masters last month at Flushing Town Hall and Queens Taste last year, we know the borough of Queens is full of delicious adventures.

For the first time in Queens, Great Small Works presents an evening of developing puppetry as part of its long-running Spaghetti Dinner series that showcases new work that responds to current trends. On April 14, Flushing Town Hall will host this exciting event which combines food & art and will featuring puppets, music, and pasta.

Great Small Works - Great Small Works’ annual year-end Spaghetti Dinner

Since its creation, Great Small Works has been the producer of the Spaghetti Dinner Series, a variety of evenings for pasta, performance, and music. Founded by veterans of Vermont’s Bread & Puppet Theater and members of Ninth Street Theater in 1978, the Spaghetti Dinners began in a storefront on East Ninth Street as informal evenings for neighborhood residents and members of the downtown theater community, combining puppet theater, New Orleans brass band music, and healthy portions of spaghetti with fresh garlic. Today, the Spaghetti Dinner still works with the same formula – vegetarian spaghetti, new performances in all media (theater, puppetry, dance, film, spoken word, polemic,) and live music.

Great Small Works Spaghetti Dinner is supported in part by a grant from the Puppet Slam Network and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
