UPSTAIRS, the Musical in L.A. - One Night Only
UPSTAIRS is a new dramatic musical about the deadliest crime against gays in U.S. History, the 1973 Arson fire at the Up Stairs Lounge in New Orleans, Louisiana, a tragedy that has languished in obscurity, its victims seldom remembered, its perpetrator unknown.
Fresh from its sold-out, critically acclaimed World Premiere run in New Orleans, UPSTAIRS will have a one-night performance in Hollywood THIS SATURDAY at 8pm!
Tickets for this scaled-down, piano only performance are only $15!
More about the play that charmed New Orleans:
"I haven't been so moved by a theatrical performance in years. It's both heartbreaking and heartwarming." David Gerrold, Hugo Award Winning Author and Playwright
"I was blown away. The music reflects the highly complex and emotional nature of the subject.... Character disagreements pile up into musical structure that left me breathless." John Voorhees, Editor, "It's Soundacious" podcast
"It was like meeting history." Royd Anderson, creator of "The Upstairs Lounge Fire" documentary
"Agneau [is] played with simmering passion by Alxander Jon." Theodore P. Mahne, Times-Picayune
