Max Vernon's new musical venture is anything but ordinary. What else do we expect from a recipient of a Jonathan Larson Grant for musical theater? True to the man himself, the score is very Rent-like: fun, fresh, and super exciting. This is the kind of music you can't wait to hear again as soon as you walk out of the theater.
The show is based on the true story of a New Orleans gay club that was set on fire in 1973 with the exits blocked, leading to the deaths of 32 people. Rampant homophobia made up a big part of the social climate of the time and this story never got told...until now.
Aside from such an emotional story told by an extremely good composer, this show is brimming with talent. Enter Nathan Lee Graham, whose vocals are so good you might want to consider bringing something to fan yourself with. The glorious set is also highlight of this show as you can see in the photos. There. Is. A. Chandelier. Made. Out. Of. Dildos.
