Rights Of Passage

June 7-9 2019

Greenwich Odeum, East Greenwich RI

Using songs in the mainstream, from the Broadway stage and the movie screen to the pop charts, we will tell the stories of the human experience that are unique and yet common to the LGBTQ genre.

The music is bold and yet quiet, bright and yet subtle; filled with honesty and openness, sharing and bonding. There is no attempt to tell just one particular story – this isn’t the journey of Richard or Robert or Michael or Jason or Darryl, etc. This is the journey of us all.

Regardless of the path our lives have taken, whether by accident or by fate or by careful control, we have all experienced moments of discovery about ourselves. We’ve all felt a little something when he walked into the room. We’ve all smiled to ourselves when we remember that first kiss. We’ve all felt the joy of knowing “someone likes me!” We’ve all felt the stab when that “like” has faded away. We’ve all felt victory and loss. Come share our journey and our “Rights of Passage.”

Below are a few of the audience reactions and comments received after our last performance:

I am writing now to say what a joy that concert was. It was a genius stroke to intersperse the brief narratives, some hilarious, others so poignant. The medley of the Broadway standards absolutely mesmerized me. I was thrilled to pieces to see and hear each piece. Congratulations on a huge success!

I can’t call what we experienced yesterday just a concert. The word tribute comes to mind–a gift that is intended to show gratitude, respect, and admiration–for those who have gone before, including the men who stood proudly on the stage. Congratulations to your vision and to the wonderful music which you and your guys brought to life.

I was accompanied by a friend who is very closeted. So unfortunate for a man of 37 years. We all must travel our own journeys, of course, but I know that through his tears yesterday, he saw some strength to move forward and edge his way to freedom. And that’s because of your concert.
