The View UpStairs Tickets

London Musical
The European premiere of Max Vernon's hit Off-Broadway play, The View Upstairs, is set to take Soho by storm this summer!
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 European premiere of the off-Broadway hit. Millennial fashion designer Wes has just purchased an abandoned building, but little does he know that this forgotten gem was the UpStairs Lounge, a vibrant ‘70s gay bar in the French Quarter of New Orleans, starting an exhilarating journey of seduction and self-exploration in the summertime heat with the rush of lust, sex and incense mixed in the air. A provocative new musical, The View UpStairs is inspired by the true story of the 1973 arson attack that was the largest single attack against the LGBTQ+ community until the Pulse Nightclub shootings in Florida in 2016. Filled with a collection of beautiful love songs and power rock ballads, this is a musical about friendship, community, how far we’ve come and how far we still have yet to go. It is a story of hope; and it’s a rainbow rollercoaster you do not want to miss. ‘A MOVING HOMAGE TO LGBT CULTURE PAST AND PRESENT.’ Entertainment Weekly Now and forever, come whatever.

    Great musical/play. The cast it's all well rounded. Ingenious story line with sudden u-turns. Highly recommended.

    Brilliant and poignant even 46 years on from the tragedy. Fabulous singing and acting in a great theatre space

  • Review Avatar Aug 17, 2019

    I had bought 2 tickets for a total of £102 for a performance of the show on Friday night. Unfortunately due to the bad weather of rain, the traffic was extremely bad on my journey and caused me and my guest to be very late for the performance which we were looking forward to. When we finally arrived, the young woman at the reception desk showed very little sympathy, and coldly said we could not enter to see the remainder of the show that had started. I did realise that if we went to our seats in the stalls, it would disturb the actors and audience., but would at least been happy to stand one side or at the back. It would be good PR for the theatre, if there would be a little human kindness to a costly situation and not a cold shoulder.
