Funny Off Broadway Show Shakes Off the Summer
Wednesday, September 16, 2015
The new Off Broadway show "The Legend of Georgia McBride" by Matthew Lopez is a comedy about a young Elvis impersonator named Casey who’s barely making a living performing in a Florida Panhandle bar. With an empty bank account and pregnant wife, during the course of the play Casey makes a rather surprising career switch from struggling Elvis impersonator to successful drag queen.
New York Times theater critic Charles Isherwood lets us know if "The Legend of Georgia McBride" is something to get all shook up about.
The MCC Theater production directed by Mike Donahue with choreography by Paul McGill runs through Oct. 11 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre.
