Were you blown away by THE VIEW UPSTAIRS' performance - and John Partridge's flares! - at West End Live this past weekend? Don't miss the opportunity to hear directly from the stellar cast of this European premiere production. Join Faves founder Terri Paddock for her post-show Q&A at the Saturday matinee on 3 August 2019 at Soho Theatre. Any questions?
Millennial fashion designer Wes has just purchased an abandoned building, but little does he know that this forgotten gem was the UpStairs Lounge, a vibrant 1970s gay bar in the French Quarter of New Orleans, starting an exhilarating journey of seduction and self-exploration in the summertime heat with the rush of lust, sex and incense mixed in the air.
Max Vernon‘s provocative new musical The View UpStairs, a hit Off-Broadway in 2017, is inspired by the true story of the 1973 arson attack that was the largest single attack against the LGBTQ+ community until the Pulse Nightclub shootings in Florida in 2016.
Filled with a collection of beautiful love songs and power rock ballads, this is a musical about friendship, community, how far we’ve come and how far we still have yet to go. It is a story of hope, and it’s a rainbow rollercoaster you do not want to miss.
This European premiere production, directed by Jonathan O’Boyle features Evening Standard Award winner Tyrone Huntley as Wes and American stage and screen star Andy Mientus as Patrick, along with John Partridge, Victoria Hamilton-Barritt, Carly Mercedes Dyer, Cedric Neal, Declan Bennett, Derek Hagen, Garry Lee and Joseph Prouse.
Following the 2.30pm matinee on Saturday 3 August 2019, I’ll be joined by members of The View Upstairs company. Any questions? Join us!
