Banned Together: A Censorship Cabaret
A celebration of songs and scenes from shows that have been censored or challenged on Americas stages, created to raise awareness about the issues of censorship and free expression in the theater. The performance will feature selections from "Cabaret", "Chicago", "Almost, Maine", "Rent" and "Angels in America", among other notable works, with a libretto by John Weidman ("Assassins", "Pacific Overtures"). Banned Together is being presented in 16 cities around the U.S., as part of Banned Books Week (September 24-30), the annual celebration of the freedom to read.
Free, one performance only. The Seattle cast includes Charles Leggett, Timothy McCuen Piggee, Amy Thone, other leading Seattle actors, and members of The Fifth Avenue Theatres Rising Star Project (ages 14-19). Allison Narver is directing.
Banned Together is sponsored by The Dramatists Legal Defense Fund, in cooperation with the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society and Actors Equity Association. The Dramatists Legal Defense Fund is a non-profit organization created by the Dramatists Guild to advocate for free expression in the dramatic arts and a vibrant public domain for all, and to educate the public about the industry standards surrounding theatrical production and about the protections afforded dramatists under copyright law. www.dldf.org.
