MAX Goes to the Theatre: The View UpStairs

  • 17 May 2019
  • 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
  • New Conservatory Theatre Center, 25 Van Ness Street, San Francisco


Registration is closed

Join MAX and the New Conservatory Theatre Center (NCTC), the premier LGBTQ theatre center in San Francisco, for the regional premiere of the smash Off-Broadway hit, 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. 

Written by Max Vernon and directed by NCTC Founder and Artistic Director, Ed Decker.

Join MAX Champion Nick Wade for this fun evening of heartfelt comedy and fun.  After the show, Nick will be heading to nearby Martuini’s (Valencia St and Market St, a seven-minute walk from the theatre).  Feel free to stop by Martuni's and join Nick for a night cap after the show.
