After taking one year off, Capital Pride’s Broadway Revue “Music in the Night” returns with an evening of song and theatrical performances connecting and fostering local talent in the national capital region’s theater community. The show will focus on the importance of the journey that leads many to ultimately participate in National Coming Out Day, which follows later in the week on October 11.
One of the many performances will include the talents of D.C. area songstress Tiffany Lyn. The professional actress and singer trained at Studio Theatre and has performed at the Anacostia Arts Center and Harmony Hall Arts Center in Fort Washington, MD. In college, she was involved in several productions including For Colored Girls and Ruined. Currently, she is a vocalist with the Outstanding Voices of DC Cabaret Series and Showcase.
“Performing has always been my biggest form of expression,” says Lyn. “I suffer from anxiety and when I’m on stage the most magical of feelings arise in me and I feel so calm. I also love making people feel things. Evoking emotion is so special to me.”
Joining Lyn onstage is headliner Todrick Hall. The singer, actor, director, and YouTube personality first rose to fame during American Idol’s ninth season in 2010. In the following year, he launched his highly popular YouTube channel, which has a current subscriber base of 2.7 million. Hall’s channel consists of notable original songs, choreographed flash mobs for Beyoncé, and musical collaborations.
Music in the Night also includes performances by Joanna Chilcoat-Fellow, Steven Cutts, Christoper David Harris, and Danielle Harrow, just to name a few. The revue will be emceed by Frank Britton, a D.C. native and Helen Hayes Award-winning performer.
“The Capital Pride 2018 theme, ‘Elements of Us,’ acknowledges the many aspects of identity that represent each of us, individually and collectively. The roster of assembled talent will shine a spotlight on the diversity of talent in our community,” says Ryan Bos, Executive Director of the Capital Pride Alliance.
“I’m most looking forward to the end of the night,” says Lyn. I am excited to watch the performances, but it’s something about taking a final bow as a group and seeing all the performers at once that gives me all the feels. It’s going to be a great show.”
“Music in the Night” takes place on Monday, October 8 at 8 p.m., at The Hamilton Live, 600 14th St. NW, Washington, D.C. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit the Capital Pride Alliance website.
