The LGBT Chamber Arts Committee is thrilled to announce a new program called the Cultural Connections Series. The series will give Chamber members the opportunity to experience various performances and special arts-related events while having the opportunity to meet other chamber members. Our first event will take place on Friday, February 7th with an exclusive Dinner & Show Package for John Cameron Mitchell's show The Origin of Love: The Songs and Stories of Hedwig.
The evening will begin with a pre-selected dinner menu at Yuyo Peruano on Manor Road with the entire group. The fun will continue with premium orchestra level seats to the John Cameron Mitchell performance at Bass Concert Hall with an exclusive post show meet and greet with our group!
John Cameron Mitchell, the double Tony Award winning, Golden Globe-nominated co-creator of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, brings songs and stories from his history in a big, brash and bold rock spectacle, performing songs from his groundbreaking rock musical and regaling audiences with stories from 20 years of Hedwig with special guest Amber Martin.
Mitchell will also preview songs from his musical podcast Anthem starring himself, Glenn Close, Patti Lupone, Cynthia Erivo, Denis O'Hare, Laurie Anderson, and Marion Cotillard.
So, put on some make-up, turn up the eight-track, and pull the wig down from the shelf -- for a night of post-punk, neo-glam rock -- a collective quest for love, hope and identity.
This exclusive offer is only available through the Austin LGBT Chamber of Commerce.
