Corona Action Nextwork had a day long festival of art, culture and music at their annual event

Queens Museum had Inti Raymi perform Ecuadorian folk dances which engaged the crowd near the unisphere…while inside Cinemarosa, curated by Multi-media artist Hector Canonge at QMA. They have been showcasing LGBT filmmakers, writers and performers in a unique and fun get together for over 7 years.

Theatre 167 Executive Director Ari Laura Kreith was on hand for an excerpt  “jackson heights 3 A.M.” reading – seen here with Screenwriter Jack Feldstein

 

Elliot Lobel on hand to take video and photos there…but he did not get a pic of  Bromley in the audience!

He might have been at a MTA Restaurant Deal SPOT:  Nixtamal restaurant, famous for it’s fresh made tortillas and authentic mexican food,  which is close by at 104-05 47th Ave in Corona!  Be on the lookout for Bromley ! you never know where he might show up…

OUR AMAZING QAX VOLUNTEERS: Jay – Danny – Lester -Waleska -Laura – Karen – Irina -Alex  and Robinson were all over QAX this weekend…but where was Bromley??

– SCOTT saw him with Pat Dorfman at Sunnyside Artists auction  and someone saw him chowing down at ElAySi…

meanwhile at Socrates – 9THIRTY THEATRE brought us “earth movements” among the new works there, JACKSON HEIGHTS Beautifcation Group had a sell out historic walking tour and IN BLOOM COLLECTIVE (arts-film-poets -music) once again ROCKED Hell’s Gate!… but alas NO BROMLEY

some thought they saw him at Ten 10 Studios on 47th Road in LIC- (check out the jazz concert in the schedule for tonight under events!)

someone thought they saw him at Sorta Secret Comedy- in a living room on 24th ave and 26th street in Astoria – but he may show up there tonight at 9pm – (details see neighborhoods)

but we did see him at LPAC- speaking with Theatre 167 Director Ari Laura Kreith and we may also see him at her  reading excerpt of JACKSON HEIGHTS 3 A.M. at Queens Museum of Art on Sunday at Cinemarosa event from 3 to 6pm.
