Thank you for attending UPSTAIRS. Look for the premiere in June!


UPSTAIRS, a New Musical (Workshop)
In the summer of 1973, an arson fire at the Up Stairs Lounge in New Orleans, LA took the lives of 32 LGBT and allied patrons.

Considered by many to be the largest hate crime against LGBT people in U.S. history, the Upstairs fire is sometimes seen as an example of the dark days of LGBT history, and a lesson in the perils of silence. The arsonist was never arrested.

"Upstairs" is a new musical by playwright and composer Wayne Self that gives voice to the many fascinating and ordinary people who died that day.

Conceived as a 32-character work, this smaller-scale workshop version reveals a few of the many compelling untold stories surrounding the fire.

Proceeds and feedback from this workshop will be used to prepare for the full premiere in June of this year, in time for the 40th anniversary of the fire.

(Though based on historical details and thorough research, and named in homage to some of victims, the characters and events presented are fictional and composite in nature.)
