With West End sensation Rob Madge heading to the Great White Way to perform their show My Son’s a Queer (But What Can You Do?), it makes sense that they would partner with Mother Monster herself to spread their message as far as they can.
On Monday (Jan. 22), My Son’s a Queer announced a special partnership with Lady Gaga‘s non-profit organization, the Born This Way Foundation. Throughout the show’s upcoming run on Broadway, My Son’s a Queer will support multiple activations from the non-profit, both at the Lyceum Theater and online, surrounding mental health support for young people.
Along with running fundraisers for the Born This Way Foundation, the activations will promote the non-profit’s Be There Certificate, an online mental health course centered around giving young people the tools to help someone dealing with mental health issues. The activations will also support the organization’s Channel Kindness initiative, encouraging young people to get involved in community engagement.
My Son’s a Queer (But What Can You Do?) is a one-man play in which Madge tells the story of their childhood, as they struggle with their identity and watch their family learn to accept them as a non-binary person, all while attempting to mount an ambitious, one-person, Disney-themed revue in their childhood home. The show’s West End run earned a nomination for best entertainment or comedy play at the 2023 Laurence Olivier Awards.
The show is slated to begin preview performances at the Lyceum Theater on Tuesday, Feb. 27, with an official opening night set for Tuesday, March 12. Tickets are available to purchase here.
