THE BIG REVEAL LIVE SHOW
Global drag icon Sasha Velour (HBO’s We’re Here, RuPaul’s Drag Race) brings her latest theatrical spectacular, The Big Reveal Live Show to Schenecdaty!
Known for her emotional, thoughtful, and crowd-shaking reveals, The Big Reveal Live Show takes things to a whole new level as Velour goes further than she ever has before. Grounded in classic theater, the show takes on many forms over the course of 90 minutes: high-concept lip sync performances, artful oration, childhood film footage, video art, and more. The Big Reveal Live Show shows this superstar at her most playful and hilarious. From the show’s whip smart comedic script and side-splitting gags, she uses comedy as a way to disarm audiences and hit them with emotional truths. The show’s drag performances are accompanied by a diverse soundtrack ranging from Stevie Wonder to Britney Spears, Stephen Sondheim to Deep Purple.
This performance will also feature a special guest appearance from the incredible Boston-based drag queen, Neon Calypso.
The Big Reveal Live Show will run for 90 minutes with no intermission. Copies of her book will be for sale at the show and purchasers will have a chance to get their copy signed by Velour after the performance.
VIP upgrades are available HERE, which includes an exclusive art print from the book and a meet-and-greet/photo-op with Velour before the show.
This show is suitable for audiences of all ages.
