UNBREAKABLE
APRIL 3-4, 2020

Irvine Barclay Theatre

MenAlive proudly presents the Southern California premiere of Broadway composer Andrew Lippa’s latest choral masterwork, UNBREAKABLE—a 14-movement musical told through several often unsung stories that span 120 years of LGBTQ History in America. Join us to experience this moving and ultimately triumphant tribute to the power of a community that cannot be broken... as we recall “where we’ve been, what we’ve endured, and who we are today.”


THE EVIL QUEEN DIARIES
july 17-18, 2020

Irvine Barclay Theatre

“Once Upon A Time” is how most fairy tales begin, but the stories we know may not always be what they seem. That is the intriguing scenario behind THE EVIL QUEEN DIARIES, MenAlive’s season finalé concert which examines the “other side of the story”—told (and sung) from the point of view of some of your favorite classic villains. Are they truly wicked or just... hugely misunderstood?
