Uptown Players continues its season with the regional premiere of the 2015 Off-Broadway hit comedy The Legend of Georgia McBride, starring Kyle Igneczi in the title role. After years of struggling at a small-time club in the Florida Panhandle, Casey (Igneczi) realizes it’s now or never for his career as an Elvis impersonator. He’s young, he’s broke, his landlord’s knocking at the door, and he’s just found out his wife is going to have a baby.
Enter Miss Tracy Mills, a self-proclaimed grande 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.”
