The Dramatists Legal Defense Fund Presents BANNED TOGETHER: A CENSORSHIP CABARET
The Dramatists Legal Defense Fund (DLDF), in partnership with PEN America, is pleased to present the third annual Banned Together: A Censorship Cabaret in fifteen cities as a part of Banned Books Week (September 24-29) -- the annual celebration of the freedom to read. The show will be performed over one week, some simultaneously, in participating cities, including Baltimore.
Join WYPR's Tom Hall and talented local singers for a celebration of songs and scenes from shows that have been censored or challenged on America's stages, created to raise awareness around issues of censorship and free expression in the theater. The performances will feature selections from Chicago, Fun Home, Spring Awakening, and The Laramie Project, among other notable works, with a libretto by DLDF president John Weidman (Assassins, Pacific Overtures) and J.T. Rogers (Oslo, Blood and Gifts).
