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! To make matters even more desperate, Casey is fired from his gig as an Elvis impersonator in a run-down, small-town Florida bar. When the bar owner brings in a B-level drag show to replace his act, Casey finds that he has a whole lot to learn about show business—and himself – in this music-filled comedy about singing your own song.
“…the production’s most memorable performance is the fabulously flamboyant and over-the-top drag queen portrait stunningly painted with “broad” strokes, dazzling pizzazz, and wickedlywitty, throw-away humor by David Hamilton…” – Beti Webb Trauth, Times Standard
“…director Shea King brings some real deft touches that elevate the play into good places both hilarious and poignant.” – David Jervis, North Coast Journal
