Event description
The Dramatists Legal Defense Fund, in partnership with PEN America, is proud to present "Banned Together" for the first time in Philadelphia

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 Philadelphia cabaret will feature selections from Cabaret, Chicago, 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 feature students from the University of the Arts, who have generously donated their time and talents to this endeavor. Come see what they have done. It is certain to be an exciting and informative evening.

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.
