Velour: A Drag Spectacular at La Jolla Playhouse

About the Event

Radical. Magical. Unforgettable.

A groundbreaking new theatrical experience about the rise and rise of a superstar. Sasha Velour is “a glossy, living piece of art” (Interview Magazine) and a true polymath – a gender-fluid drag queen, author, activist, artist and winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race who has performed her fantastical shows to sold-out audiences around the world. Moisés Kaufman has created some of the most powerful theatre works of recent times (The Laramie Project, Here There Are Blueberries).

Their iconic collaboration is part memoir, part manifesto, and a modern coming‑of‑age tale inspired by Sasha’s own origin story and the history of Drag. Expect dramatic reveals, high camp, sumptuous couture, an irresistible soundtrack, and a visually magical pop-art universe.

“Velour is a virtuoso of pageantry on the stage.” The New Yorker
