The View UpStairs

The European premiere of the off-Broadway hit. 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 ‘70s gay bar in the French Quarter of New Orleans, starting an exhilarating journey of seduction and self-exploration in the summertime hear with the rush of lust, sex and incense mixed in the air.

A provocative new musical, The View UpStairs is inspired by the true story of the 1973 arson attack that 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.

‘a moving homage to LGBT culture past and present.’

    What a great new musical bringing the past and the present together in a magical way. Such superb acting, singing, staging. Everything about it was sublime.
