An event every day that begins at 7:00 pm, repeating until June 26, 2021
Progressive Theater presents THE VIEW UPSTAIRS written by Max Vernon. This musical takes a fictional approach to the 1973 arson attack on New Orleans Upstairs Lounge.
When Wes, a young fashion designer from 2017, buys an abandoned building in the French Quarter of New Orleans, he finds himself transported to the UpStairs Lounge. As this forgotten community comes to life, Wes embarks on an exhilarating journey of self-exploration that spans two generations of queer history. This smash Off Broadway hit features a gritty, glam rock score and a tight-knit ensemble of unforgettable characters.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.
