The View UpStairs "takes your breath away!" (Time Out New York). This provocative new musical pulls you inside the UpStairs Lounge, a vibrant '70s gay bar in the French Quarter of New Orleans. The forgotten community comes to life when a young fashion designer from 2017 buys the abandoned space, setting off an exhilarating journey of seduction and self-exploration that Entertainment Weekly calls "a moving homage to LGBT culture, past and present." Filled with "beautiful love songs performed by a soulful ensemble cast" (The New Yorker), it's "an eye-popping roller coaster for the visual senses" with "a jambalaya of sexed-up tunes! Sung by an outstanding cast, The View UpStairs has all of the ingredients for an iconic cult phenomenon!" (Edge Media Network).

The cast of The View UpStairs features Jeremy Pope (Invisible Thread, Choir Boy) as Wes, Taylor Frey (How to Succeed..., South Pacific) as Patrick, Nathan Lee Graham (Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Zoolander) as Willie, Frenchie Davis (Rent, "The Voice") as Henri, Benjamin Howes (Scandalous, Mary Poppins) as Richard, Michael Longoria (Jersey Boys, Hairspray) as Freddy, Ben Mayne as Dale, Nancy Ticotin (Gotta Dance, Bernarda Alba) as Inez, Randy Redd (Million Dollar Quartet, Ring of Fire) as Buddy, in addition to Richard E. Waits, Anthony Alfaro and April Ortiz.

Through its developmental history, selections from The View UpStairs have been performed at New York Stage and Film, Joe's Pub, Goodspeed Opera House, NYU, The Living Room, Two River Theater, The Dramatist 2 Guild, Pride Films and Plays and the Rhinebeck Writers Retreat. A concert version was presented at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater in July to raise money for Equality Florida to benefit the victims of Pulse Orlando.
