BASTILLE! will be featured at The Tank for a single live performance

The Tank and The Essential Services Project will present in person a live presentation of BASTILLE!, designed and performed by John Fisher Thursday, July 14, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. EDT for a single live performance.

It will be presented as part of The Essential Services Project, which is restarting with three new shows at The Tank – until July 28!

SYNOPSIS: The French Revolution liberated the people. It also liberated homosexuals. And Napoleon was as cheerful as possible. A radical queer sets out to turn history upside down with an outrageous camp-drag-disco musical that will make LES MIZ look like a one-man show.

All previous performances available below.
