Backstage Pass: “The Legend of Georgia McBride”
FORT MYERS, Fla. – On today’s segment, we welcomed three cast members to chat as the Florida Repertory Theatre’s 26th season continues with a fabulous new comedy, “The Legend of Georgia McBride,” by Matthew Lopez.
Life is a “drag” for a down-and-out Elvis impersonator, so he trades his jumpsuit for sequins in this new, music-filled comedy.
“The Legend of Georgia McBride” follows Casey, an Elvis impersonator struggling to make a living in a Panama City Beach dive bar.
He’s young, broke, behind on rent, and now his wife is pregnant. To make matters worse, Casey gets fired, losing his gig to a second-rate drag show.
However, a twist of fate and a makeover by some fabulous new friends provide Casey a second chance to make it in showbiz.
The “Legend of Georgia McBride” will run in the Historic Arcade Theatre in downtown Fort Myers from Oct. 24 through Nov. 12.
