The View UpStairs @ The Lynn Redgrave Theatre!! 

So excited to announce my first New York production!! TIX ON SALE NOW:

http://www.theviewupstairs.com/

The View UpStairs will open Off-Bway in February at the Lynn Redgrave Theatre with an incredible group of performers (Nathan Lee Graham Frenchie Davis Michael Longoria Jeremy Pope Doreen Montalvo Mann Taylor Frey Randy Redd Richard E. Waits Anthony Alfaro Benjamin Howes) and crew whose Charisma Uniqueness Nerve and Talent blows my mind. I've spent the last 5 years putting everything I have artistically and emotionally into this show and trying to do justice to the story of the UpStairs Lounge- The show explores what has changed over the last 40+ years in the queer community -what we've gained and lost in the fight for equality, and if we're better off. In context of this current moment of cultural backlash and far-right extremism, not to mention the hate crime earlier this year at Pulse, I'm less sure than I've ever been of the answer to that question BUT... getting to create a new musical full of characters who are 3-dimensional, dirty, queer, decadent, fierce, and fucked up- has kept me going. I hope you'll come see the world we've created and join us at the UpStairs Lounge! X
