Diverse and energetic. Emblematic of the intersection between rollicking music and tempestuous politics, ‘The View UpStairs’ delivers.
The Daily Beast

The View UpStairs pulls you inside the UpStairs Lounge, a vibrant 70s gay bar in New Orleans. The forgotten bar regulars come to life when a young fashion designer from 2017 buys the now abandoned space and is transported back in time. He gets to know the joys and struggles of this community and in turn learns about his place in the world. From the opening piano chords of this Off-Broadway sensation, the five-piece band and cast of ten blast into the glam rock world of the 1970s. In our ever-changing world, this show looks at the then and now to explore our ideas of love, regret, defiance and resilience. The music will give you goosebumps, the story will make you both laugh and cry. See why Ru Paul said the show was “FABULOUS! It was fantastic.”

“Vibrant and jubilant. The show swells with heart, a moving homage to LGBT culture, past and present.” - Entertainment Weekly
