“You’re enough. Right now. In this very moment. It took me 32 years to actually start to believe this. We spend most of the time listening to the nagging voice in our head, the one that constantly criticizes everything we do and think it's the truth. But it's absolutely not. If we talked to our friends the way we talk to ourselves, well, we wouldn’t have any friends. It's important to develop self compassion and begin being nicer to yourself. That's when the real magic happens." - Billy Griffin,  Canal Street, A-C-E.

The View Upstairs - Off-Broadway Show- Billy Griffin

The View UpStairs “TAKES YOUR BREATH AWAY!” (Time Out New York). This provocative new musical pulls you inside the UpStairs Lounge, a vibrant '70s gay bar in the French Quarter of New Orleans. The forgotten community comes to life when a young fashion designer from 2017 buys the abandoned space, setting off an exhilarating journey of seduction and self-exploration that Entertainment Weekly calls “a moving homage to LGBT culture, past and present.” Filled with “beautiful love songs performed by a soulful ensemble cast” (The New Yorker), it's “an eye-popping roller coaster for the visual senses” with “a jambalaya of sexed-up tunes! Sung by an outstanding cast, The View UpStairs has all of the ingredients for an iconic cult phenomenon!” (Edge Media Network).
