Theatre Tampa Bay and the Dramatists Guild present Banned Together
The Dramatists Legal Defense Fund (“DLDF”) is pleased to present “Banned Together: A Censorship Cabaret” as a part of Banned Books Week (September 24-30th), the annual celebration of the freedom to read. Our production in Tampa Bay is September 28th, 2017 at Stageworks Theatre.
This is a free event, but donations will be accepted at the door and all proceeds will be donated to the Dramatist Guild Legal Defense Fund.
“Banned Together: A Censorship Cabaret” is a celebration of songs and scenes from shows that have been censored or challenged on America’s stages, created to raise awareness around issues of censorship and free expression in the Theater. The performances will feature selections from “Cabaret”, “Chicago”, “Almost, Maine”, “Rent” and “Angels in America,” among other notable works, with introductory material by DLDF president John Weidman. The show will be performed by special guest artists (soon to be announced). In addition to a performance in New York City at the famed Joe’s Pub, “Banned Together” will also be performed across the country in fifteen cities including Seattle, Chicago, Houston, Dallas and Tampa Bay, FL., as part of the Banned Books Week activities.
The Dramatists Legal Defense Fund is a non-profit organization created by the Dramatists Guild to advocate for free expression in the dramatic arts and a vibrant public domain for all, and to educate the public about the industry standards surrounding theatrical production and about the protections afforded dramatists under copyright law. www.dldf.org. @TheDLDF.
Special thanks go to Stageworks Theatre for allowing us to present this in their theatre.
