THE STORY: 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.
“Stitch-in-your-side funny…full of sass and good spirits.” —The New York Times. “Lopez demonstrates a…stellar gift for amusing dialogue and farcical humor…highly entertaining.” —The Hollywood Reporter. “…[an] irresistible crowd-pleaser…Chasing buzzy themes of identity and transformation, GEORGIA MCBRIDE is by turns sweet and salty and deceptively deep…confirms [Lopez’s] status as a writer worth hearing from.” —New York Daily News. “…a delightful, genderbending farce…a funny and often glorious tribute to the art of drag…Lopez delivers a strong message on tolerance for the entire spectrum of human sexuality, while creating a barrelful of fun in the process.” —Variety. “[A] heartfelt, feel-good comedy…a spirited defense of drag as a form of cultural protest and a way of life.” —AM New York.
