Banned Together: A Censorship Cabaret—Boston, MA
The Dramatists Legal Defense Fund, in partnership with PEN America, presented Banned Together: A Censorship Cabaret during Banned Books Week 2018 (September 23-29). This lively celebration of songs and scenes from shows that have been censored or challenged on the American stage raised awareness around issues of censorship and free expression in theater. The performances featured selections from Chicago, Spring Awakening, Cabaret, Rent, and Angels in America, among other notable works, with contextual commentary by DLDF president John Weidman. Award winning director Ilyse Robbins directed the evening alongside a terrific cast.
