Come Back Once More So I Can Say Goodbye

COME BACK ONCE MORE SO I CAN SAY GOODBYE

Presented by Labyrinth Dance Theater

 SAVE-THE-DATE

June 14-17, 2019

In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Stonewall and World Pride coming to New York for the first time ever, Come Back Once More So I Can Say Goodbye, is an evening-length theatrical dance performance which tells the story of the gay community from 1965-1995 in New York City.

The piece takes us from the early Gay Rights Movement with the historic Sip-In at the Julius Bar to the uprising at Stonewall and to the enduring, widespread apathy and abject hysteria towards the AIDS epidemic. Through stunning performances, we experience the indomitable resolve of those who defiantly faced the siege against them with humor, bravery and compassion. Each performance will be dedicated to supporting the work of an LGBTQ youth or HIV service-related organization.

 

Presented by Labyrinth Dance Theater, the show features thirty renowned dancers, singers and musicians representing a multi-generational and diverse cast, which reflects the diversity and energy of the characters in the piece.

 

For those who lived through this epoch, it is an opportunity to honor and celebrate the memory of loved ones lost. For younger generations, it’s an important and timely reminder that being able to live authentically as an LGBTQ person is historically very recent, not a guaranteed right, and only possible because of the hard-fought battles of those who came before us.

 

Where:              The Alvin Ailey Citigroup Theater

405 West 55thStreet
