New York City Gay Men’s Chorus today announced that for their tenth annual Big Gay Sing®, its annual sing-along extravaganza, they will celebrate with BIG GAY SING X which will include crowd favorites from past performances coupled with brand new, timely pop and Broadway hits. Performances will run from March 9 – 11 at NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts.
“After 10 crowd pleasing, dancing in the aisles, audience belting Big Gay Sings – it’s time to celebrate with our favorite hits from past shows along with some new material that is topping the charts as we speak,” said Charlie Beale, Artistic Director of NYCGMC.
“With a reputation to uphold as the creators of Big Gay Sing® that has been franchised around the world, we will be serving up the biggest of the big, the gayest of the gay, sing-along extravaganza you will ever experience complete with outrageous drag queens, iconic gay anthems, and over the top performances,” Beale added.
BIG GAY SING X will feature crowd favorites from past Big Gay Sings® including Proud Mary, Tonight (Quintet) from West Side Story, a masterful arrangement of Lady Gaga’s Edge of Glory, a medley of RuPaul’s hit pop songs, and Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody among others. These will be coupled with new and timely hits like Ke$ha’s Rainbow, This Is Me from The Greatest Showman, and Broadway’s Dear Evan Hanson anthem You Will Be Found.
Big Gay Sing®, an NYCGMC original concept and now in its tenth smash year, has become New York’s greatest way to welcome spring. Its outrageous sing-along format has become so popular that Big Gay Sing® has been franchised to choruses around the US and the world.
Big Gay Sing X will be performed at NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts at 8pm Friday March 9 and Saturday March 10, and Sunday March 11 at 3pm. Tickets are now available at nycgmc.org.
