The View UpStairs, the provocative new musical written by Max Vernon, directed by Scott Ebersold & choreographed by Al Blackstone are teaming up with the New York LGBT Community Center at 208 West 13th Street in NYC for a special event exploring the musical next Wednesday, February 1st at 7P. The evening will include a musical sneak peek into the show with the cast & a special panel will include my good friend famed journalist Michael Musto, Robb Leigh Davis (Director of Cultural Engagement for The Center), Ross Murray (Programs Director, Global and U.S. South, GLAAD) & the show’s creator Max Vernon, moderated by the show’s director Scott Ebersold. The View UpStairs takes place inside the UpStairs Lounge, a vibrant ‘70s gay bar in the French Quarter of New Orleans. This forgotten community comes to life in all its gritty, glam rock glory when a young fashion designer from 2017 buys the abandoned space, setting off an exhilarating journey of seduction & self-exploration that spans two generations of queer history. Inspired by one of the most significant yet all-but-ignored attacks against the LGBTQ community, The View UpStairs examines what has been gained & lost in the fight for equality & how the past can help guide all of us through an uncertain future The cast will be accompanied by James Dobinson, the show’s Music Supervisor & Orchestrator. Tickets are $10 & include admission, talkback & complimentary reception.
