Center Repertory Company will present "The Legend of Georgia McBride," written by Tony and Olivier Award winner Matthew López ("The Inheritance," "The Whipping Man," "Somewhere," the book of the Broadway musical "Some Like it Hot," and Amazon Studios’ "Red, White & Royal Blue"). Casey is an Elvis impersonator with everything going for him, including a flashy sequin jumpsuit. But after he loses his gig, rent is overdue, and his wife announces a baby on the way, Elvis leaves the building and a drag show moves in. With the help of some new friends who become the chosen family Casey never saw coming, “The King” transforms into an all-out queen. Directed by acclaimed Bay Area actor/director Elizabeth Carter, "The Legend of Georgia McBride" is filled with snappy zingers and dance-worthy numbers. The New York Times deemed the play “stitch-in-your-side funny…full of sass and good spirits.” The New York Daily News calls it an “irresistible crowd pleaser… chasing buzzy themes of identity and transformation, 'Georgia McBride' is by turns sweet and salty and deceptively deep… Lopez's play confirms his status as a writer worth hearing from.”
