NEW YORK, Feb. 9, 2016? –?The New York City Gay Men’s Chorus today announced that tickets are now on sale for Big Gay Sing?, its annual sing-along extravaganza being held from March 18 – 20 at NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts. This year’s production is Big Gay Sing: Mind the Gap! celebrating some of the most legendary British artists and pop songs from the past five decades.
“This year’s Big Gay Sing will be the most fabulous musical love-fest for British pop music that this city has ever seen,” said Charlie Beale, Artistic Director of the NYCGMC and an ex-pat Brit. “Big Gay Sing: Mind the Gap! will be both sensational and surprising?what better way to salute David Bowie, a pop culture genius who has been a huge influence on us over the years,” Beale added.
Big Gay Sing: Mind the Gap! will feature a tribute to Bowie along with arrangements of British chart-toppers by Adele, Spice Girls, Jessie J, Dusty Springfield, Queen, plus many more. “The arrangements, the immensity of the sound, and the sparkle from drag queens and dancers will have you jumping to your feet and your jaw hitting the floor,” Beale commented.
Big Gay Sing, an NYCGMC original concept and now in its eighth year, has become New York’s most fun way to welcome the color and gayness of spring. Its outrageous sing-along format has become so popular that Big Gay Sing has been franchised to choruses around the US and the world.
“After a long winter, there’s nothing better than an over-the-top spectacle that has you dancing in the aisles and channeling our inner pop diva,” said Jason Sirois, Board Chair of Big Apple Performing Arts, the home of NYCGMC. “The mission of NYCGMC is to champion acceptance, equality, and sensational music. Big Gay Sing demonstrates that we are just as fabulous performing in g-strings as we are in tuxes,” Sirois added.
Big Gay Sing: Mind the Gap! will?be performed at NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts at 8pm Friday March 18 and Saturday March 19, with a matinee on Sunday March 20. Tickets are now available here or visit nycgmc.org.
