What we do
Banned Together : A Censorship Cabaret
Banned Together: A Censorship Cabaret is a celebration of songs and scenes from shows that have been censored or challenged on America’s stages, created to raise awareness around issues of censorship and free expression in the Theater. Previous performances have featured selections from Cabaret, Chicago, Almost, Maine, Rent and Angels in America, among other notable works, with contextual commentary by DLDF president John Weidman.
In 2019, Banned Together will be performed during Banned Books Week in cities across the United States. Check back soon for dates.
