The View UpStairs
About The View UpStairs
Glam-rock, gospel and modern pop collide in the smash Off-Broadway hit "The View UpStairs." When impulsive entrepreneur Wes buys a dilapidated building in the French Quarter of New Orleans, he’s phantasmically transported to its glory days: the UpStairs Lounge in 1973. Serving as a home, a church, and a gay dive-bar, the UpStairs was its own kind of paradise. As Wes meets the larger than life lounge regulars, he learns what has been gained and lost in the fight for equality, and how the past can help guide all of us through an uncertain future.
