As part of her ongoing post-show Q&A series, on Saturday 3 August 2019, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock returns to Soho Theatre for the European premiere of Max Vernon’s acclaimed Off-Broadway musical The View Upstairs. Got any questions?

For my second post-matinee Q&A at Soho Theatre this summer, after lyrical new Irish play Citysong last month, I’m thrilled to be able to talk to the stellar company for the European premiere of this important musical about twentieth-century LGBTQ history…

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 1970s 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.

Max Vernon‘s provocative new musical The View Upstairs, a hit Off-Broadway in 2017, 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.

This European premiere production, directed by Jonathan O’Boyle features Evening Standard Award winner Tyrone Huntley as Wes and American stage and screen star Andy Mientus as Patrick, along with John Partridge, Victoria Hamilton-Barritt, Carly Mercedes Dyer, Cedric Neal, Declan Bennett, Derek Hagen, Garry Lee and Joseph Prouse.

Following the 2.30pm matinee on Saturday 3 August 2019, I’ll be joined by members of The View Upstairs company. Any questions? Join us!
