“The Mattachine” will feature the creator of the Tony Award-winning rock musical “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” Broadway star John Cameron Mitchell, and will raise money for ICM Theatre’s June 2020 production of the show at Vinyl Music Hall, as well as LGTBQ charities designated by Stamped Film Festival.“

“The Mattachine” is named for the Mattachine Society, which challenged the practice of bars not serving homosexuals in the mid-’60s. The event features Mitchell and partner DJs PJ DeBoy and Paul Dawson, stars of his groundbreaking film of sexual exploration, “Shortbus,” as well as cabaret performer Amber Martin. “The Mattachine” was first thrown in New York City at the infamous dive bar Julius, turning it to an unconventional “It” spot in the process.

As with “The Mattachine,” a nonprofit organization designated by Stamped will receive all funds from a $1 per ticket surcharge on tickets to the show. Tickets to “The Mattachine” are $100 and include your first specialty cocktail. VIP packages including early admission and a pre-show meet-and-greet with John Cameron Mitchell are $200. Attendance is strictly limited to 300, and only 50 VIP packages will be sold.
