It Gets Better

  • Overview

    It gets better is a new artistic collaboration with the world-famous San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus. This work previously resided under the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles, but now the program has found a new home in San Francisco. The It gets bet­ter Tour brings the experience and message of the online It Gets Better Project to communities and audiences by blending music, theater, and multimedia into a work for the stage. The cast brings to life real stories from gay, lesbian, transgender, and straight allies from around the country.

    With the it gets bet­ter Tour, a small but ded­i­cated ensem­ble trav­els to com­mu­ni­ties nation­wide to pro­duce a week of edu­ca­tional work­shops cul­mi­nat­ing in a mov­ing musi­cal the­ater per­for­mance. To date, the tour has reaches close to 15,000 students and has visited 18 cities across the country. The week high­lights anti-bullying, tol­er­ance and accep­tance through com­mu­nity round­table dis­cus­sions, high school vis­its, it gets bet­ter videos, and cre­ative exer­cises. Local choirs join the cast onstage for the final musical number in what has been described as the most touching and moving moment of the entire show.
