‘Songs From An 
Unmade Bed’

The arts have a wonderful way of letting you see yourself expressed in song, paint or performance, perhaps for the first time. “Songs from an Unmade Bed” is a musical dramedy about the love life of a gay man in New York City. It was first shown at the New York Theatre Workshop in 2005. It’s performed by one singer and three musicians. In Louisville, the cast is baritone Chad Sloan, pianist John Austin Clark, cellist Travis Carlisle and percussionist Benji Simmons. All the proceeds will go to the Louisville Youth Group, an organization that provides a safe place for LGBTQ youth. The event will be at Jimmy Can’t Dance, located below Another Place Sandwich Shop. Tickets, $20 seated and $10 standing, are available online and at the door.
