  3. I Hate the South, But I Love You: The Songs of Lain Walls


Join us at 54 Below for I Hate the South, But I Love You: The Songs of Lain Walls, a side-splitting evening featuring the works of BroadwayWorld Atlanta Awards-nominated composer, librettist, and lyricist Lain Walls. With a night full of celebrating and embracing queer identities while featuring songs about love, loss, and youth – with titles like, “Gay Virginity” and “Community Theatre Show,” Lain’s colorful harmonies, witty lyrics, and sardonic characters will have you crying because you’re laughing so hard and laughing because you’re crying so hard, in an almost cyclical actuality of passionate emotion. Produced by Elisabeth Nordeen (Redefining Femme Fatale at 54 Below) and featuring a budding cast of talented artists performing the work of an up-and-coming musical theater writer, this is a show you won’t want to miss!
