The Legend of Georgia McBride
QUEENS AREN’T BORN. THEY’RE MADE.
Casey is an Elvis impersonator with a dream of a life as big as Graceland. So what does he do when he loses his job, the rent is due, and a baby is on the way? Why, transform from “the king” into a drag queen, of course. This big-hearted, music-filled comedy will challenge your assumptions with extraordinary humor and depth.
