Greta Garbo doesn’t know it yet, but she is in her final year on earth. Lonely, she spends most of her time secluded in her home, cracking jokes and telling stories to her imaginary friends in the form of two toy troll dolls, a plastic snowman, and a painting. Greta is confronted with her final task: to destroy a small box, which contains mementos of her life and loves. Will she have the courage to burn them—or will she have to face the part of herself that hides from the world? In this hilarious yet poignant portrayal, Greta finds that although her life is aflame, her heart it still intact.
"This performance will haunt you well after you've seen it."
- Cheryl Wiesenfeld, Tony Award winning producer "Elaine Stritch at Liberty"

“Queens Girl” is a biting look at how to fit in with family while standing out in the crowd. The multimedia show has Lauren transforming into her confused mother, bitter sister, old-school grandparents, and some hard-coiffed Queens folk. Driven to see what else is out there, Lauren breaks out of New York’s outermost outer borough and floats through the ‘rugby years’ of New England college, discovers performance art in San Francisco, and finally embraces her inner flamboyance at Bombay fashion week—coincidentally, all places where her sexuality could be explored via hairstyle.
"A solo show that you'll remember -- one of the best that I've seen in NYC."
-Judy Bowman, NYC casting director
"A fascinating story made most memorable by the characters she brings to tell it."
-Pat McCorkle, Casting Director and Emmy Award Nominee
“Lauren LoGiudice weaves a multi-character story of stretching the boundaries of family, culture, and gender.”
