Singin’ in the Rain:
Taking place during the rise of the “talkies”, we meet Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont who have risen to stardom during the silent-film era of Hollywood. Beautiful, charismatic and influential, the two combine to make a great on-screen pair. The introduction of talking pictures poses a threat to the powerful duo, however, when it is discovered by audiences that Lina has an excruciatingly shrill voice. Enter young studio singer Kathy Selden, a woman who lacks the stardom of Ms. Lamont but possesses the beautiful voice of which Lina is in dire need. Can Don and Lina find a solution to Lina’s laughably annoying voice to salvage their careers?

Live at the Landing: Pam Reyes @ LIC Landing
Jul 25 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Live at the Landing: Pam Reyes @ LIC Landing | New York | United States

Hunters Point Parks Conservancy, in partnership with Queens Council on the Arts and LIC Landing by COFFEED is proud to present “Live at the Landing,” a summer music series featuring Queens-based musicians from multiple genres, neighborhoods, and backgrounds. On July 25th we present Pam Reyes: Pam Reyes first found the courage to sing her personal lyrics outside of her Sunnyside bedroom at the age of 16. It has been said that Pam’s performances are an exercise in collective vulnerability—a roomful of strangers in concerted reminiscence. Her frank, bordering on dark, songwriting meets her stirring voice in a match made not quite in heaven or hell, but some place just in between. In October 2019, Pam independently released her most ambitious project to date. In an emotive style all her own, the new single and music video, “Dear Dreamer,” explores her own family’s migration to America and stands in solidarity with young immigrants threatened by the current White House administration.
