Concept & Book by MISS HAZEL JADE
Music & Lyrics by JEROME KURTENBACH
Directed by MINDY COOPER
Award-winning playwright, dramaturg, and queer activist, Miss Hazel Jade, returns to the stage with QUEER, an original Broadway-aimed musical that explores the complexities of gender and sexuality, and the intersections, thereof — within the LGBTQ+ community, at large.
Set in Greenwich Village, New York, QUEER unfolds the story of Mackenzie Martinez, a fierce Latinx bisexual woman who’s lost her voice in her marriage to her wife, Gizelle Davenport, a genderfluid femme who owns Gender Threads Customs, a custom clothing shop which has come to be a safe haven to their community. The shop employs Jessica King, a Black transgender woman desiring to be loved for who she is, and her witty gay best friend. However, when an old friend of theirs comes to town after being dismissed from the military, the three will find that their lives will be transcended forever. QUEER celebrates acceptance, unity, and the courage it takes to be authentic to one’s self.
Directed by Mindy Cooper (Dracula, The Musical); with a book by Miss Hazel Jade (Paper or Plastic); and music & lyrics by Jerome Kurtenbach (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) — mixing electronic dance music and a live string orchestra and also mixes classic pop sounds and lyrical structure, and traditional musical theatre. We invite you to experience LGBTQ+ love and “Chosen Family” like never before!
