May 19, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Capital City Men’s Chorus presents Unbreakable: The Untold Stories of our Community – Capital City Men’s Chorus 30th Anniversary Spring Show, May 18 – 19 at Bates Recital Hall
Our season will conclude at UT’s Bates Recital Hall with the Texas premiere of UNBREAKABLE, a groundbreaking new work by Tony Award-nominated composer Andrew Lippa (I Am Harvey Milk, The Addams Family, Big Fish, The Wild Party). This new musical presents an historical arc to the experiences of LGBTQ people over the last 12 decades, illuminated by four characters drawn from real-life stories from throughout LGBTQ history. These stories include: Jane Adams, the first woman to win a Nobel Peace Prize in 1931 and an open lesbian activist; Lem Billings, JFK’s best friend, a closeted gay man seated at the side of the most powerful man on Earth; Sylvia Rivera and the transgender community she nurtured; and AIDS and its impact on a generation. The work weaves together the themes of awareness and activism and seeks to illuminate decades of setbacks and progress in the United States.
