When Wes, a young fashion designer from 2017, buys an abandoned building in New Orleans' French Quarter, he finds himself transported to the UpStairs Lounge, a vibrant seventies gay bar, where he embarks on an exhilarating journey of self-exploration that spans two generations of gay history. Featuring a gritty, glam rock score and a tight-knit ensemble of unforgettable characters, The View Upstairs asks what has been gained and lost in the fight for equality, and how the past can guide us forward.
