This event has already taken place.Oct. 12, 2023 – 14, 2:15 – 3:45 pm, Oct. 12, 2023 – 15, 6 – 7:30 pm,

A new LGBT experimental play written by Steve Fogelman, Musical Chairs is about the subscriptions we have both to services as well as intrinsic things like arcane ideologies of gender roles, marriage, and what a family looks like. Staged in only four chairs, the story follows musical theater enthusiasts and recent city transplants, Tory and Nadine Lovett, as new season subscribers of touring Broadway musicals at their local historic theater.  Even before the move, Tory’s begun to pursue his sexual truth, making Nadine desperate to hold their marriage together. But after the couple’s flirtatious collision with neighboring subscribers, denial is no longer an option in this dramatic, yet humorous exploration of balancing dreams, vows, and attraction, through a voyeuristic lens of cultural and sexual evolution.

The runtime is 90 minutes with no intermission.
