"On November 8th, 2015 Jeffrey Higgins was fired from his singing job in the Archdiocese of Washington for being a gay, married man. After a short battle with the Church, Jeffrey left music behind, finding it too painful to relive his sacking with every note he sang. A Deafening Sound is his return to the musical world. Using music from several genres, Jeffrey will tell a deeply personal story of shame, depression, love, and the climb back to stable ground."
A few months ago Marika joined Jeffery as music director for his cabaret entitled A Deafening Sound. The cabaret will be presented as part of Rainbow Theatre Project's 2018-2019 season. It runs November 23 -24, 2018.
