The San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus concludes Season 40: Unstoppable with UNBREAKABLE, a groundbreaking world premiere work by Tony Award-nominated composer Andrew Lippa (I Am Harvey MilkThe Addams FamilyBig FishThe Wild Party).

Starring Andrew Lippa, internationally acclaimed soprano Lisa Vroman, Broadway’s Britney Coleman and rising tenor Marcus J. Paige—and backed by the 250-member San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus and a 10-piece chamber ensemble—this new musical presents an historical arc to the experiences of LGBTQ people over the last 12 decades, illuminated by four characters drawn from real-life stories from throughout LGBTQ history. These stories include: Jane Adams, the first woman to win a Nobel Peace Prize in 1931 and an open lesbian activist; Lem Billings, JFK's best friend, a closeted gay man seated at the side of the most powerful man on Earth; Sylvia Rivera and the transgender community she nurtured; and AIDS and its impact on a generation. Told in four scenes, the 70-minute work weaves together the themes of awareness and activism and seeks to illuminate decades of setbacks and progress in the United States.
