Unbreakable Poster


June 22 - 23, 2018

Unbreakable is my musical tribute to the LGBTQ community-how we evolved, triumphed, suffered and soared. Unbreakable is not only a statement of how we have reacted in the past. It's a statement of how we must go forward.

Why See Unbreakable?


The World Premiere of Andrew Lippa's Unbreakable

Inspired by August Wilson's seminal 10-play cycle covering African-American history, composer and lyricist Andrew Lippa debuts the world premiere of Unbreakable, a musical chronology of the cultural evolution of gay rights in America. The groundbreaking new work follows the success of Lippa's critically acclaimed twelve-song oratorio I Am Harvey Milk starring Kristin Chenowith in 2014 and is just as ambitious in scope.

Over 70-minutes Lippa, three principal performers and the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus will take the audience on a bold historical journey from the 1900s to the present day. Highlighting significant moments in gay history and shining a light on unsung LGBTQ heroes like first woman Nobel Peace Prize winner and lesbian activist Jane Addams, the musical is a touching tribute to the trials, tribulations and triumphs of a community still evolving and fighting for equality today.

The Color Purple has been born again... The current version is a slim, fleet-footed beauty, simply attired and beguilingly modest. Don't be deceived, though, by its air of humility. There's a deep wealth of power within its restraint.
