WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Based on the beloved series of novels by Armistead Maupin, Tales of the City follows a community of friends, lovers, and others who reside at the mythical address of 28 Barbary Lane in 1976 San Francisco. Mary Ann Singleton (Betsy Wolfe), a fresh arrival from Ohio, falls into a diverse band of bohemians and blue-bloods as families are created and rediscovered under the watchful eye of mystical landlady Anna Madrigal (Justin Vivian Bond). With a rocking score by the Grammy Award-nominated Scissor Sisters' Jake Shears and John Garden, and a book by Tony winner Jeff Whitty, this musical is making its New York City debut in concert format. The performance is a benefit show whose proceeds will go to the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center and the Trevor Project, which is the only accredited national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning young people under the age of 25.
