The View Upstairs Footage, Concert @ The Center, & Rehearsal Photos

It's been a crazy busy & exciting week for The View UpStairs. We had our press preview event a few days ago  and Theatermania filmed this wonderful video of the cast sangin' the house down.

Playbill was also on hand to take a few lovely photos:

At the presentation I felt like I was serving throwback Prince glam, but upon peeping the photo evidence I'm now thinking it was more like Sante Fe middle-aged woman from the knitting circle treks to Lilith Fair to see the Indigo Girls :P

Then we gave a sold out preview concert at the LGBT Center, which also included a talkback with panelists such as GLAAD's Ross Murray, Nightlife/Downtown Journalist Legend Michael Musto, and yours truly looking like a gay keebler elf meets hell's angel meets 20's flapper on a coke bender.

 

 

 

 

How do I unwind from this madness? Well, in the true spirit of The View UpStairs, I go to gay bars and watch lesbians conquer fascism by fingering each other in public. Take that Trump!

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!
