The Stonewall Jukebox: A Documentary Concert

Saturday, August 10, 2024

Part jubilant musical performance, part little-known oral history, David Driver’s The Stonewall Jukebox: A Documentary Concert tells the unknown / unexpected / profoundly uplifting story of how The Stonewall Uprising came to be, and how it impacted contemporary LGBTQ+ culture. Through musical performances interwoven with contemporaneous texts pulled from magazines, books, interviews, and songs that were played at The Stonewall Inn, the show pays homage to the very real people who lived, fought, and survived The Stonewall Riots, and sheds a light on the social and political climate that paved the way for those remarkable events.

“I was drawn to this material by its diversity. Its joy. Its exuberance,” Driver says. “During the phase when we were researching the material itself, I loved to close my eyes and imagine what it must have been like in that sweatbox of a venue, 50 years ago, surrounded by all sorts of people having all sorts of experiences. Having no clue that they were about to be in the midst of a huge moment in our shared history.”
