MCC Theater presents the story of an Elvis impersonator who must become a winning drag queen in the Florida Panhandle to keep everything from falling apart. More…
He's young, he's broke, his landlord's knocking at the door, and he's just found out his wife is going to have a baby. To make matters even more desperate, Casey is fired from his gig as an Elvis impersonator in a run-down, small town Florida bar. When the bar owner brings in a B-level drag show to replace his act, Casey finds that he has a whole lot to learn about show business — and himself.
See it if you want a superficial, feel-good evening. No heavy-lifting, but there could have been...and it feels like a cheat. No insight into gender.
Don't see it if you want to be challenged, not just entertained. TLOGM is frustrating in its outdated, too easy approach. Some of the numbers dazzle.
