Do you have anything planned for Valentine’s Day weekend? The Queens Theatre is putting on a unique show about love on Saturday, February 17 and Sunday, February 18.

“Broadway Valentine” is shaping up to be a romantic and fun night out listening to some of the greatest love songs ever written for the Broadway stage.

The show will feature real life Broadway couples including Tony Nominee Erin Dilly (“Chitty Chitty Bang Bang”) and Stephen Buntrock (“Les Miserables”), Kyle Dean Massey (“Wicked”) and Taylor Frey (“How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying”), and Alysha Umphress (“Bring It On”) and Cody Williams (“Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”).

"We are looking forward to having this stellar cast perform at Queens Theatre,” said Queens Theatre Executive Director Taryn Sacramone. “There is something extra-magical about the fact that these talented performers are couples in real life. It'll be a great date night for theater lovers."

The concert-style revue will be produced by Stephen DeAngelis exclusively for the Queens Theatre. DeAngelis was the casting director for Queens Theatre’s productions “The Miracle Worker,” “In the Car with Blossom and Len” and “Jimmy and Carolyn.”

In addition to producing over 250 different Broadway concerts in New York and across the country, DeAngelis also has experience in casting for over 3600 network television and radio commercials including for Red Lobster, Covergirl, Febreze, Pantene and Advil.

"I am thrilled to be producing my first concert at Queens Theatre,” DeAngelis said. “I am especially excited to bring this combination of extremely talented and unique Broadway performers to share their talents and stories to create special memories for this audience."

The program will consist of music across the spectrum of Broadway, Pop, the American Song Book, and Country, punctuated with personal stories from the cast and a lively question and answer session with the audience.

Head to the Queens Theatre, located at 14 United Nations Avenue South in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, for two performances only on February 17 at 8pm and February 18 at 3pm. Tickets from $20 (free parking and free shuttle bus from Mets - Willets Point subway stop on the 7 train) and can be purchased by visiting QueensTheatre.org or by calling 718.760.0064.

Valentine's Day is on a Wednesday. Last time I checked, that day was not part of the weekend.

C'mon already - get it right.
