Banned Together: A Censorship Cabaret is 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 "Cabaret", "Chicago", "Almost, Maine", "Rent" and "Angels in America," among other notable works, with a libretto by DLDF president John Weidman.

The Dramatists Legal Defense Fund is a non-profit organization created by the Dramatists Guild to advocate for free expression in the dramatic arts and a vibrant public domain for all, and to educate the public about the industry standards surrounding theatrical production and about the protections afforded dramatists under copyright law.
