About The Show
BRING THE BEAT BACK
By Derek Lee McPhatter
Bring the Beat Back is a queer, black, sci-fi music-theater experience, set in a funky futuristic, groove-centered alternative reality. Inspired by Afro-futurism, house music and the underground ball scene, the show follows a young man struggling to reconcile his sexuality with his faith.
The hero journeys towards spiritual affirmation and self-discovery as conservative religious authorities and an ostentatious queer subculture clash over the music at the center of his world.
