For the last few weeks, I have been rehearsing this beautiful one-act musical with Moontan Productions. I play a non-binary person named Jules, who is the owner of the bar, aptly named 'The Jewellery Box', where much of the action of the play takes place.
Coming Out On Broadway is a heartwarming story of self love and acceptance. It is filled with scenes that some may find all too familiar, but also offers hope, that love can flourish in the relationships we nurture.
Below are a few rehearsal snaps, courtesy of Moontan Productions.
Join us for a work-in-progress showing of our new musical 'Coming Out On Broadway'!
New Aussie musical 'Coming Out on Broadway' is a celebration of self love! Gen's just moved to Sydney and finds herself swept up in her outgoing cousin Jack’s performance club. When Gen discovers the club meets and performs at The Jewellery Box, a LGBT+ bar, she suddenly finds herself confronting her identity and her already strained relationship with her older brother, Harry. Join Gen, Mel, Jack, Jules, and Angus as they go on a journey of self actualisation, love, and discovering the importance of the family we choose.
