NEW JERSEY: Get Together & Banned Together

Dramatists Guild members and their friends are invited to Banned Together: A Censorship Cabaret at 7:30pm on Thursday, September 28 at Short Stories Bookshop and Community Hub in Madison, NJ.

Presented by the Dramatists Legal Defense Fund, in conjunction with Writer’s Theatre of New Jersey, Banned Together: A Censorship Cabaret is a celebration of songs and scenes from shows that have been censored or challenged on America’s stages. This event was created to raise awareness around issues of censorship and free expression in the theatre. The performances will feature selections from Cabaret; Chicago;Almost, Maine; Rent; and Angels in America; among other notable works. The libretto is by DLDF president John Weidman.

Banned Together: A Censorship Cabaret will be presented in seventeen cities as a part of Banned Books Week (September 24-30), the annual celebration of the freedom to read.

The Dramatists Legal Defense Fund is a non-profit organization created by the Dramatists Guild to advocate for free expression in the dramatic arts and a vibrant public domain for all, and to educate the public about the industry standards surrounding theatrical production and about the protections afforded dramatists under copyright law.
