The View UpStairs on Towleroad & Queerty

Two of my favorite Queer blogs have shared exclusives on The View UpStairs

Queerty has some behind the scenes photos of our two leading men, Taylor Frey and Jeremy Pope- blessed with brains, beauty, and belting.

and Towleroad has a video interview with me and dir. Scott Ebersold talking about the show and a bit of the history surrounding the UpStairs Lounge.

Check it out!

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

The View UpStairs

Invisible Wall's workshop presentation of The View UpStairs took place last week on 3/31 and 4/1. So proud of what we were able to create with only 2 1/2 weeks of rehearsal. It was the most creatively inspired I've ever felt & I loved my cast and creative team. Onward and upward!
