The Lavender Blues is an historical, musical and theatrical journey that tells the story of queer music before World War II. Some of our most famous musical artists of the early 20th century were not only “in the life” – meaning gay, bisexual or transgender – but they sang about this life too. With songs and stories from Vaudeville, Tin Pan Alley, the Harlem Renaissance, the Weimar Republic and more, performance artist Sarah Kilborne brings to life a little-known, yet revolutionary moment in music history when pioneering artists sang boldly about sexual and gender fluidity – something daring even for today, and as deliciously fun and inspiring as ever.
The Turning Point entrance is down a set of stairs. Please contact the venue at (845) 359-1089 for more information about accessibility.
