Web Series WHAT A DRAG to Premiere This Weekend

What A Drag, a new LGBTQIA+ comedy web series will debut October 30,2021, starring Prescott Seymour (Also known by their famed drag persona "Sutton Lee Seymour") and John Wascavage (writer/ creator) as the series leads.

The first season of this short-form digital series features 7 episodes, 5-7 minutes in length, all available on the What A Drag YouTube Channel. A free public pre-screening of the series will be held on October 29th at 7:00PM at The Chain Theatre. Tickets available for reservation here.

What A Drag follows Preston, a brassy drag queen, and Ben, an on-again-off-again actor, as they navigate the insane she-nanigans life throws at them. From makeup mishaps, to dating nightmarish social media influencers, to a blindsiding medical diagnosis, these two queens make lemon-drop-martinis out of lemons as they untuck the power of found family.

Based on true events, the comedic series explores the power of the art form of drag within the queer community. In a time when drag has never been more mainstream, What A Drag peels back the curtain and focuses in on one of drag's most magical aspects: its ability to transcend.

With direction by Michael Bello and filmed and edited by Milliron Studios, the series also features Waseem Alzer ("We Live In Cairo"), Amy Keum ("Evil," "KPOP"), Jeremy Pasha ("The Cadaver Synod: A Pope Musical"), and Destinee Rea ("Book of Mormon," "TINA").

What A Drag was made possible by a grant from City Artist Corps and NYFA.
