Leaves: Songs of Ourselves for Pride Month, feat. Claybourne Elder, Bradley Gibson, & more!
June 27, 2022
“I celebrate myself, and what I assume you shall assume, for every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.”
In celebration of Pride Month, Leaves: Songs of Ourselves celebrates gay icon Walt Whitman who, 160 years ago in New York City, turned the literary world upside down with his daring and affirming poems and left a legacy for LGBTQ people to find their history. Rodney Bush and Eric Rosen have created a cycle of songs that explore the joy, complexity, romance, and pleasure of being gay in 1855 and now.
Think Leaves of Grass, but with a folk/rock vibe and a chance to hang out with some of the hottest out actors on Broadway. A night of raucous fun, new music, and some of the greatest words ever written, Leaves is definitely more of a party than an English class, which honors the spirit of gay New York and its most famous chronicler.
