The New York Mets will once again give its fans a glimpse into Taiwanese culture. The 10th annual Taiwan Heritage Night, presented by the Taiwan Tourism Bureau, will take place at Citi Field when the Mets host the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday, Aug. 31. starting 6 p.m.

Her TV, movie and Broadway careers have spanned five successful decades. But beautiful Michele Lee has no intention of slowing down. Her latest project, along with the Broadway Boys has brought her to Queensborough Performing Arts Center.

At Sunday’s show, six mellow voiced guys create their own unique harmonies for some of Broadway’s most beloved tunes. Between songs they share stories with the audience. After the old standards, they glide to the biggest hits from “Rent,” “Wicked,” and ‘Pippin” then finish with their version of “Ease on Down the Road.”

For Michele Lee, a very talented all girl band plays back up. Her voice is as strong as ever as she sings her opening songs. Ms. Lee changes her costume slightly to change the mood. She dons sunglasses for “Sunset Blvd.” and an apron for “I’m a Woman, W-O-M-A-N!” Ms. Lee sings Fantine’s solo from “Les Miserables” and pays tribute to composer Cy Coleman with a powerful solo from “Seesaw”.

QPAC’s professional series continues with well known celebrity performers until the end of the spring season. Call (718) 631-6311 or surf to www.visitQPAC.org. As always, save me a seat on the aisle.
