A New York Times CRITICS PICK.
What do you do when your Elvis act gets the axe? With a pregnant wife, an empty bank account and an eviction notice on its way, Casey trades in his jumpsuit and becomes the most popular drag queen in the Florida panhandle. The Legend of Georgia McBride is a show-stopping, hilariously extravagant comedy about discovering your true voice with music and glitter galore.
