LIPPA, ANDREW - UNBREAKABLE CD

$ 17.99

 

A Musical Chronology of the Gay Experience in America Spanning 120 years of history too long unsung, 'Unbreakable' explores the gay experience in America through the words and music of celebrated composer and lyricist Andrew Lippa. Focusing on a curated selection of stories throughout American LGBTQ history - like Harvard's "Secret Court" of 1920, the life of transgender and gay activist Sylvia Rivera, The Lavender Scare, the remarkable work of Nobel Peace Prize winner Jane Addams, and others - 'Unbreakable' is a heartrending and ultimately triumphant look at where we've been, what we've come through, and who we are today. Most of all, 'Unbreakable' is a tribute to the perseverance and power of a people who would not be defeated and could not be broken. The CD package includes a 36-page booklet with full lyrics, performance photos, a synopsis, and a liner note from show producer Bruce Cohen. The San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus premiered 'Unbreakable' at Nourse Theater in San Francisco, CA on June 22-23, 2018. Portion of three premiere live performances were culled together for this original cast recording.
