Home > Performances > "The Legend of Georgia McBride" at Actor's Express

The Legend of Georgia McBride asks, “What do you do when your Elvis act gets the ax?” For a man named Casey, who has a pregnant wife, an empty bank account and an eviction notice, it means trading your jumpsuit for sequins and strutting your stuff as the Florida Panhandle’s newest drag queen. This musical comedy, described by The New York Times as “a stitch-in-your-side funny, first-rate production full of sass and good spirits,” is the work of Matthew Lopez, the playwright behind the much more serious Civil War drama The Whipping Man (seen at the Alliance Theatre in 2013).
