Los Altos Stage Company proudly pulls out all the stops for the South Bay Premiere production of Matthew Lopez's sparkling The Legend of Georgia McBride. A stark contrast to other works in the award-winning playwright's repertoire, this sassy, charming 90-minute comedy takes the Bus Barn stage by storm September 6 through September 30.

Los Altos Stage has this fierce, fabulous, and raucous showbiz comedy opening its 2018-19 season. Georgia McBride premiered in 2015 at the Denver Center Theatre for the Performing Arts and has since been produced at major theaters around the country.

Times are tough for Elvis impersonator Casey, who performs his act for an audience of zero in a Panama City, Florida dive bar. With the rent long overdue and a baby on the way, desperate Casey watches as a seasoned drag queen named Miss Tracy Mills brings her show to town. After filling in for one of Tracy's regular girls on short notice one night, Casey decides to trade in his sequined jumpsuit for a sequined dress, and under Miss Tracy's tutelage, finally achieves stardom. With The Legend of Georgia McBride, Los Altos Stage joyfully and campily brings a very different side of Matthew Lopez's repertoire to the Bay Area with this heel-toting showbiz comedy.

Matthew Lopez is the author of The Whipping Man, one of the most widely produced new American plays of the last several years. The play premiered at Luna Stage in Montclair, NJ and debuted in New York at Manhattan Theatre Club.
