NEW YORK, March 7, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The New York City Gay Men's Chorus today announced that the legendary Lorna Luft will join the men as they tribute British pop songs from the past five decades. Having lived in the UK since the age of 8, Luft will bring first hand stories from some of your most beloved British artists being honored throughout the night.
Tickets are now on sale for Big Gay Sing®, playing from March 18 - 20 at NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts.
"Lorna Luft is a true star of stage and screen and her life in the UK will add a special treat for the audience this year," said Charlie Beale, Artistic Director of the NYCGMC and an ex-pat Brit. "We could not be more thrilled to have her grace the stage with us, sing along side us, and share in the celebration of music from across the pond," 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.
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.
