The Life

The Life

Off-Broadway
Musical
Twelve-time Tony-nominated musical (including Best Musical) The Life dramatizes the complex lives in post-disco Times Square and tells the story of Queen, a prostitute who strives for a better life against all oppressive forces. The Cy Coleman score includes showstopping songs like “The Oldest Profession” and “My Body.” Emmy and Tony Award-winning artist Billy Porter (FX’s Pose, Kinky Boots) reclaims this musical as this production’s adapter and director to bring forth the gritty, dangerous, and exciting decadence of 1980s New York City and an authenticity to the lives of sex workers.

Adapted and Directed by Billy Porter
