The New York City Gay Men’s Chorus is bringing Big Gay Sing back to Asbury Park on Sunday, March 4 at 3 pm for a “pay-what-you-like” preview. The official performances are scheduled in New York on March 9-11, 2018 This year they are bringing Big Gay Sing X which celebrates ten years of the Big Gay Sing tradition and will include crowd favorites from past performances coupled with brand new, timely pop and Broadway hits.
The performance is free. But, pay-what-you-like donations are encouraged. At pre-show and intermission, the chorus will hold a fundraising raffle. Items include a night out on the town in NYC, with tickets to Chicago on Broadway.
“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 the chorus.
“With a reputation to uphold 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 said.
The afternoon matinee will feature “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.”
