Event description
The Dramatists Legal Defense Fund, in partnership with PEN America, is proud to present "Banned Together" in Florida.

About this Event

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 theatre.

The Florida cabaret will feature selections from Cabaret, Chicago, Fun Home, An Octoroon, Rent, and Angels in America, among other notable works, with a libretto by DLDF president John Weidman (Assassins) and J.T. Rogers (Oslo, Blood and Gifts).

This performance will be directed by The Studio@620’s Bob Devin Jones, with musical accompaniment by Tom Sivak, and special guests Jordan Stovall, Doug Hall, and vocalists from The University of South Florida School of Theatre and Dance.

The evening’s entertainment also includes the premiere of Love v. Death: A New Chamber Opera by Tom Sivak. This soon-to-be-banned 45-minute opera brings a spooky but true Florida love story to vivid life.

A voter registration table will be available, thanks to the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections.

There is no charge for admission, and anyone may attend. Reservations are encouraged, as we have limited capacity and this helps us anticipate audience size and plan accordingly. However, we may be able to accommodate those without an Eventbrite reservation on a first come, first served basis, pending remaining capacity and availability on the day.

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

PEN America stands at the intersection of literature and human rights to protect free expression in the United States and worldwide. We champion the freedom to write, recognizing the power of the word to transform the world. Our mission is to unite writers and their allies to celebrate creative expression and defend the liberties that make it possible. www.pen.org. @PENamerican
