“Full of sass and good spirits” – The New York Times

Times are tough for Elvis impersonator Casey, who performs his act for an audience of zero in a Panama City, Florida dive bar. With the rent long overdue and a baby on the way, desperate Casey watches as a seasoned drag queen named Miss Tracy Mills brings her show to town. After filling in for one of Tracy’s regular girls on short notice one night, Casey decides to trade in his sequin jumpsuit for a sequin dress, and under Miss Tracy’s tutelage, finally achieves stardom. With The Legend of Georgia McBride, MTC joyfully and campily brings a very different side of Matthew Lopez’s repertoire to the Bay Area with this fierce, fabulous and heel-toting showbiz comedy.


Mr. Lopez’s The Whipping Man received both Obie and Lucille Lortel Awards and the John Gassner New Play Award from the New York Outer Critics Circle.
