This provocative new musical pulls you inside the UpStairs Lounge, a vibrant '70s gay bar in the French Quarter of New Orleans. The forgotten community comes to life when a young fashion designer from 2017 buys the abandoned space, setting off an exhilarating journey of seduction and self-exploration that Entertainment Weekly calls “a moving homage to LGBT culture, past and present.” The View UpStairs asks what has been gained and lost in the fight for equality, and how the past can help guide all of us through an uncertain future. Glam-rock, gospel and modern pop collide in this smash Off-Broadway hit by Max Vernon!
