Synopsis


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 heat 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 was 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.
