Los Angeles' Geffen Playhouse presents the city-wide premiere of Matthew Lopez's comedy play, that first premiered in 2014 in Denver, before heading to Broadway as part of Manhattan Theatre Club's season at the Lucille Lortel Theatre, the following year. Following the journey of an Elvis impersonator as he tries his hand as a drag artist in this delightfully witty and agile farce. This West Coast premiere will be helmed by Mike Donahue and features choreography by Paul McGill, who worked on the original production.
Set in the Florida Panhandle, Casey is an unemployed Elvis impersonator in need of a quick buck, and some much-needed direction in life. In desperation, he takes up a job offer from drag queen Miss Tracy, to fill in for her drunk partner at a night's cabaret performance. Turns out he's a natural, and soon he's decked out in sequins and warbling Barbara Streisand with the best of them. However, he's kept his new job secret from his wife Jo, who's starting to wonder about her husband's newly unleashed feminine side.
