In this comedy from Tony Award-winning writer Matthew Lopez, Casey is young, he’s broke, his landlord’s knocking at the door, and he just found out his wife is going to have a baby. To make matters even more desperate, Casey is fired from his gig as an Elvis impersonator in a run-down, small-town Florida bar. When the bar owner brings in a b-level drag show, but half of the duo can’t go on, Casey steps into the spotlight. This drag-to-riches musical comedy features our own local legend Delighted Tobehere.
WHO SHOULD SEE THIS SHOW: We all admit that the best part of sports movies is the montage that shows our underdog protagonist slowly start to improve while “Gonna Fly Now” blares over the speakers, right? So when is the last time you saw the theatrical version of that, but with a hilarious twist? Say what if an Elvis impersonator was fired from his job but then forced to do a drag number in front of a rowdy bar without any training? And then what if it turns out this Elvis impersonator is actually really good at being a drag queen? And then what if he hides this new career from his very pregnant wife? Matthew Lopez (Tony winner for THE INHERITANCE) delivers a big-hearted, delightful fish out of water story with GEORGIA MCBRIDE. It delivers big laughs and even bigger lip sync numbers. A drag to riches story featuring Greenville’s own Delighted Tobehere in a role they were born to play, this is a night you won’t want to miss. If you want a big-hearted comedy like CHRISTMAS ON THE ROCKS or NATIVE GARDENS, this show is for you!
