The Legend of Georgia McBride

by Matthew Lopez
directed by Jeffrey Meanza

Overview

A big-hearted, music-filled comedy

Casey is an Elvis impersonator with everything going for him, including a flashy sequin jumpsuit. But just like that he loses his gig, rent is overdue and his wife announces a baby on the way. So when Elvis leaves the building and a drag show moves in, “The King” transforms into an all-out queen with the help of some new friends who become the second family Casey never saw coming. With snappy zingers and dance-worthy numbers, this wildly entertaining story will challenge your assumptions with extraordinary humor and depth.

Special cabaret seating

There’s nothing ordinary about this legendary show. That’s why we’re swapping our regular front-row seats (Rows AA and BB) for a limited number of cabaret-style tables that get you up close and personal with our spectacular queens – and you might even lock eyes with Georgia McBride if you’re lucky. 

Call the Box Office for availability.
