Running Time: 1 hour and 45 minutes, no intermission

A music-filled comedy about finding your true voice in an unexpected place. After years of struggling at a small-time club in the Florida Panhandle, Casey realizes it’s now or never for his career as an Elvis impersonator. Enter Miss Tracy Mills, a self-proclaimed grand dame of drag who guarantees Casey’s life is about to get “all shook up.” Matthew Lopez’s hip-shakin’, heartwarming tale explores what happens when one man trades in his blue suede shoes for platform pumps and discovers he ain’t nothing but a drag queen.

Hailed by critics as “Full of sass and good spirits…” (The New York Times), “A highly entertaining, genuine crowd-pleaser.” (Hollywood Reporter), and "...a barrelful of fun!" (Variety)
