The View UpStairs "takes your breath away!" (Time Out New York). This provocative new musical pulls you inside the UpStairs Lounge, a vibrant '70s gay bar in the French Quarter of New Orleans. The forgotten community comes to life when a young fashion designer from 2017 buys the abandoned space, setting off an exhilarating journey of seduction and self-exploration that Entertainment Weekly calls "a moving homage to LGBT culture, past and present." Filled with "beautiful love songs performed by a soulful ensemble cast" (The New Yorker), it's "an eye-popping roller coaster for the visual senses" with "a jambalaya of sexed-up tunes! Sung by an outstanding cast, The View UpStairs has all of the ingredients for an iconic cult phenomenon!" (Edge Media Network).
