The show follows a diverse group of young people as a joyful evening at a gay nightclub, following the death of the iconic Judy Garland, is brutally interrupted by a police raid that touches off days of violent protests. Hit the Wallpremiered in 2012 at Chicago's famed Steppenwolf Theatre. Hit the Wall transports audiences to the Stonewall Riots in New York's Greenwich Village on June 27-28, 1969, when a routine police raid on an underground gay hotspot became a foundational moment for the modern gay rights movement. Featuring a howling live rock band that evokes the era's proto-punk music and fast-paced, sharp dialogue, the vivid theatrical re-imagination focuses on ten unlikely revolutionaries, each claiming in turn "I was there."
Hit the Wall is recommended for mature audiences only due to adult content and language.
Water Tower Theatre is located at 15650 Addison Road, Addison, TX 75001

The Dallas Way underwrote and worked with the University of North Texas to present an exhibit at Dallas City Hall that includes memorabilia items and a huge timeline that covers a massive wall and gives an overview of major happenings in the Dallas LGBT community throughout its history. About 85 people attended the opening of the display and heard speakers who shared stories about their involvement in the history of the community. Speakers included Terry Loftis, former city-councilman Chris Luna, and Barbara Rosenberg. The exhibit will be on display in the main lobby of City Hall throughout the month of June.
