Jointly benefits the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center and The Trevor Project.

The New York City premiere of the musical Tales of the City. With music by the Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears and John Garden, and a book by Tony Award-winner Jeff Whitty, this vibrant new musical is a celebration of inclusivity, love, discovery, equality, and chosen family. The iconic story will be presented for one night only at Broadway’s Music Box Theatre March 27, 2017, in a benefit for the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center and The Trevor Project.

Based on the beloved series of novels by Armistead Maupin, Tales of the City follows a community of friends, lovers, and others who reside at the mythical address of 28 Barbary Lane in 1976 San Francisco. Mary Ann Singleton, a fresh arrival from Ohio, falls into a diverse band of Bohemians and blue-bloods, as families are created and rediscovered under the watchful eye of mystical landlady Anna Madrigal.

Tales of the City was first developed at the O'Neill’s 2009 National Music Theater Conference, and had a subsequent run at the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco in 2011. The concert will feature many returning cast members from both productions as well as support from the original creative team, including director Jason Moore and music director/vocal arranger Stephen Oremus. The concert is directed by Travis Geisler and music directed by Cian McCarthy.
