Watch and Listen: The Legend of Georgia McBride 

When: Friday, June 1st @ 7:30pm, Saturday, June [email protected] 7:30, Sunday, June 3rd @ 2:00pm
Where: Flying Anvil Theatre / 1300 Rocky Hill Rd. Knoxville 

What happens when a failing Elvis impersonator reluctantly agrees to become a drag performer and finds out he’s really good at it? Hilarity ensues, with a powerful message about being true to yourself. 

“The Legend of Georgia McBride,” by Matthew Lopez, is a bold, brassy comedy with a heart as big as its wigs. The show’s lip-syncing divas provide plenty of laughs while sharing the difficulties, discrimination and danger of their profession. It’s a gift to the audience, all wrapped up in sequins and feathers.

The play was a New York Times critic’s pick in 2015. Reviewer Charles Isherwood called it “full of sass and good spirits — along with a spritz or two of sentimentality.”
