Out Front Theatre Company opens its 2018/19 season with the regional premiere of The View Upstairs, a musical that ran off-Broadway in 2017. Meet Wes, a modern-day fashion designer who buys an abandoned building in New Orleans' French Quarter, and finds himself transported to a vibrant 1970s gay bar. His journey of self-exploration spans two generations of queer history. The musical by Max Vernon (book, music, lyrics) is based on the real-life events of a 1973 arson attack at the Big Easy's UpStairs Lounge. The New York Times, in its review, said the musical "channels a vintage camp that is all too rare nowadays." Entertainment Weekly called it "a moving homage to LGBT culture, past and present," and said "the show swells with heart."
