Melissa Young’s “Out and Proud” w Nick Sula, Dan Riley, Daryl Nitz & Jeannie Tanner @ Davenport’s

Melissa Young’s tour of the LGBTQ movement through song and comedy returns with a little help from Chicago’s best Cabaret stars at Davenport’s Piano Bar.

Celebrate Pride month with Melissa Young and Nick Sula as they return with Young’s historical hit, OUT AND PROUD: A Rainbow Celebration. Ten years ago, Young performed the music of the World’s most loved LGBTQ Icon’s to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, June 28, 1969 and now returns to celebrate the progress our country has made with help from some of her friends! Daryl Nitz, Jeannie Tanner and Dan Riley join Young and Sula this time around.

Starting with Stonewall and Judy Garland, Young will follow the LGBTQ Rights timeline, matching Icons to significant moments in history. Dolly Parton’s Light of the Clear Blue Morning in 1977 aligns with Anita Bryant and the S.O.C., Bette Midler’s Do You Wanna Dance aligns with a post Stonewall New York ( 1971-73 ) of Bathhouses and Gay owned Discos. The creation of the Pride flag 1979/80 and Diana Ross’ I’m Coming Out! Young’s passion for the history and where the movement is today comes across with laughter, heart and great love. $25, Reservations recommended. Young’s been seen all around town at Davenports, Hydrate, the Park West, 3160 and Drury Lane Water Tower and out of town at The Dunes Resort, Don’t Tell Mama in NYC, The Duplex NYC and The Stonewall Inn.
