Banned Together: A Censorship Cabaret—Boston, MA
The Dramatists Legal Defense Fund, in partnership with PEN America, presents Banned Together: A Censorship Cabaret during Banned Books Week 2019 (September 22-28). This celebration of songs and scenes from shows that have been censored or challenged on America’s stages raises awareness around issues of censorship and free expression in theater. Previous performances have featured selections from Cabaret, Chicago, Fun Home, Rent, and Angels in America, among other notable works, with contextual commentary by DLDF president John Weidman (Assassins).
In 2019, Banned Together will be performed in 15 cities across the United States. Award-winning directors Ilyse Robbins and Weylin Symes will helm Boston’s event. The event is free and open to the public.
