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. "The King” transforms into an all-out queen with the help of some new friends who become the second family Casey never saw coming. With snappy zingers and dance-worthy numbers, this wildly entertaining story will challenge your assumptions with extraordinary humor and depth. The King is dead… long live the Queen!
Featuring David Henderson as Miss Tracy Mills and Matthew Hager as Casey. Directed by Susannah Hough.
