The Cast & Creative Team
Tony Award winner Judy Kaye, Betsy Wolfe, Mary Birdsong, Patrick Lane, and Wesley Taylor have been cast as the denizens of 28 Barbary Lane. Based on Maupin's beloved literary series, set in 1970s-era San Francisco, Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City features a score by Scissor Sisters band members Jake Shears and John Garden, a libretto by Tony Award winner Jeff Whitty (Avenue Q), choreography by Larry Keigwin, and direction by Tony Award nominee Jason Moore (Avenue Q, Shrek: The Musical).
On the bustling streets of 1970s San Francisco, neon lights pierce through the fog-drenched skies, disco music explodes from crowded nightclubs, and a wide-eyed Midwestern girl finds a new home—and creates a new kind of family—with the characters at 28 Barbary Lane. Three decades after Armistead Maupin mesmerized millions with his daily column in the city's newspapers, his iconic San Francisco saga comes home as a momentous new musical. Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City unleashes an exuberant celebration of the irrepressible spirit that continues to define our City by the Bay.
