At the intersection of cabaret and opera The Pleasing Recollection is a playful, witty, and joyful tale that sings in the sensibility of contemporary musical theatre, but reminisces about a period in the lives of LGBTQ+ people that was both exhilarating and dangerous.

In the mid-1970s, a young man (portrayed by As One’s Michael Kelly) lands ashore in Manhattan without a map. Negotiating his way into a life in the performing arts, the “Cabaret Opera” chronicles his musical adventures as he charmingly stumbles into some of the musical and theater giants of the era including Larry Kert, Leonard Bernstein, Charles Ludlum, and Aaron Copland among them.

Librettist Stephen Kitsakos’s autobiographical story rolls forward from Lincoln Center to Greenwich Village to upstate New York with the composer Martin Hennessy’s ingenious score.
