Music Theatre of CT Presents THE LEGEND OF GEORGIA MCBRIDE

Music Theatre of Connecticut (MTC) MainStage, Fairfield County's professional award-winning theatre company will continue their 37th MainStage Season with the big-hearted, fierce, and music-filled comedy, The Legend of Georgia McBride by Matthew Lopez.

This wildly fun play follows an Elvis impersonator named Casey as he finds an unexpected and transformative new career. The Legend of Georgia McBride will run three weekends from February 16th through March 3rd, 2024 with performances on Fridays & Saturdays at 8pm and Saturday & Sundays at 2pm. 

In The Legend of Georgia McBride, Casey, a young and financially struggling Elvis impersonator facing impending fatherhood, finds himself ousted from his gig at a rundown Florida bar, only to have it replaced by a B-level drag show, leading him to discover the intricacies of show business and his true self. With a flashy sequin jumpsuit traded for a vibrant queen persona, Casey navigates the challenges with newfound friends who become an unexpected second family, offering a wildly entertaining journey filled with heart, dance-worthy numbers, and extraordinary humor that challenges assumptions with depth. Hailed as "stitch-in-your-side funny" by the New York Times, this big-hearted and fierce music-filled comedy promises a transformational and memorable experience.

The Legend of Georgia McBride stars Clint Hromsco (Nat'l Tour- Jekyll & Hyde, Wizard of Oz) as Casey, Scott Mikita (B'way- Phantom of the Opera) as Eddie, Russell Saylor (Nat'l Tour- Starlight Express, Off B'way- Strings Attached) as Miss Tracy Mills, Diva LaMarr (Nat'l Tour- Jersey Boys, Goodspeed- Dreamgirls) as Rexy/Jason, and Teagan La'Shay (Playhouse On Park- Pippin) as Jo.

The Legend of Georgia McBride is directed by Kevin Connors with Stage Management by Abbey Murray.
