Ring of Keys: Queering the Canon
Monday, January 31: Queering the Canon: Andrew Lloyd Webber
Wednesday, February 23: Queering the Canon: Sondheim
Tuesday, March 8: Queering the Canon: Kander & Ebb
The Queering the Canon Concert Series will be presented by Ring of Keys, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit artist service organization that fosters community and visibility of queer women, trans, and non-binary artists working onstage and off in musical theatre. It serves nearly 600 artists in 40 cities throughout the United States, the U.K, and Canada.
Building off a sold-out Queering the Canon concert at Joe's Pub in February 2020, Queering the Canon returns in a 3-concert engagement to further queer the stage and transform the musical theatre canon. Queering the Canon: Andrew Lloyd Webber, Queering the Canon: Sondheim, and Queering the Canon: Kander & Ebb will showcase canonical tunes performed alongside new original songs written by Ring of Keys songwriters. Performed by Ring of Keys artists to interpret songs through their perspective, this Series seeks to queer the original canon of musical theatre, while highlighting upcoming songwriters who are currently queering our stages and creating a new canon.
Queering the Canon Concert Series is made possible in part with funding from NYC Pride Gives Back and public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by LMCC.|
