Queen of the Night


Don’t disappoint the Queen! The “Queen of the Night,” is directed by Christine Jones and amazing ensemble cast. With a running time of over three hours, this magical experience takes place at the Diamond Horseshoe at the Paramount Hotel. The Diamond Horseshoe is the basement of the Paramount Hotel and thanks to Randy Weiner and his vision; he was able to transform the space into a spectacular transformative space. Loosely based on Mozart’s The Magic Flute, the Queen of the Night invites guests into a dark mystical fantasy.

Combining dinner and theater, “Queen of the Night” is New York’s latest interactive theater craze combining food, circus, sex, and interactive performances which engages the audience from the moment they make their way down the stairway. Upon your arrival to the grand party to meet the Queen; guests are tasked with certain missions to complete before their time is up.

After the cocktail and interactive portion, guests are escorted to their seats by the attractive butlers decked out in halter tuxedo shirts and risqué shorts, to enjoy a succulent dinner that consist of an entire piglet, a cage of lobsters, and a tray of short ribs. Guests were encouraged to steal and barter for other entrees if they do desired at other tables.

While you are enjoying one of your main courses, guests are still entertained and unable to look away from the elaborate floor show which showcases a variety of circus acts, which include a gymnast jumping through a hoop which is hung from the ceiling, and other assortments of performances and tricks.

Once the show is over, the audience is left to mingle and eventually disperses. Leaving the fantasy and experience where it all began.

The creative team for Queen of The Night includes: Tony Award winner Christine Jones (director), circus creation by Shana Carroll of Les 7 Doigts de la main, food performance created by Jennifer Rubell, associate direction by Jenny Koons, creative direction by Giovanna Battaglia, set and scent design by Douglas Little, fashion design by Thom Browne, lighting design by Austin R.
