It has been announced that Tyrone Huntley will star in the European premiere of The View UpStairs at the Soho Theatre, opening later this year. First performed at an off-Broadway venue in 2017, the musical follows Wes, a fashion designer soon after buying an abandoned space, who learns that the space was once a gay bar in the French Quarter of New Orleans, targeted in an arson attack in 1973. The London premiere is one of ten productions of The View UpStairs to be performed around the world from 2017 to 2019.
The View UpStairs Tickets
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.
