Lavender Life will be performed in the 2019 Philly Fringe Festival
“Lavender Life” is a musical cabaret centered around the struggles of the LGBTQ+ community in the 1930’s directed by Molly Jo Gifford and music directed by Kylie Westerbeck. Through the parallel of history and the rise of fascism/divided government with the growing safety concerns for those who identity as a minority, Lavender Life will explore what it means to find strength in community in the face of a weakened nation. We will also be exploring themes like:
What does it mean to truly support other people?
What does it mean to be an ally?
What does it mean to come together in times of confusion and difference? And, how do we generate awareness and conversation?
