The View UpStairs, the provocative new musical written by Max Vernon and directed by Scott Ebersold, will launch its Off-Broadway run at The Lynn Redgrave at Culture Project (45 Bleecker Street) next month.

Choreography is by Al Blackstone with James Dobinson serving as music supervisor and orchestrator. Previews begin February 15 prior to an official opening February 28 for a run through May 21.

The View UpStairs pulls you inside the UpStairs Lounge, a vibrant ‘70s gay bar in the French Quarter of New Orleans. This forgotten community comes to life in all its gritty, glam rock glory when a young fashion designer from 2017 buys the abandoned space, setting off an exhilarating journey of seduction and self-exploration that spans two generations of queer history. Inspired by one of the most significant yet all-but-ignored attacks against the LGBTQ community, The View UpStairs examines what has been gained and lost in the fight for equality, and how the past can help guide all of us through an uncertain future.
