Sasha Velour presents an immersive evening of drag, storytelling, and live art, in celebration of her forthcoming book The Big Reveal: An Illustrated Manifesto of Drag (Harper Books, April 4, 2023). The book documents the histories and controversies surrounding drag alongside Velour’s own personal story. The live show brings this to life with iconic new performances from Sasha, an in-person conversation with a special guest star, and an audience Q&A. Book signing to follow!

Velour’s live performances have been called “an entirely new level of performance art” (Yahoo) and “heart-wrenching” (Billboard). Her first one-queen drag show Smoke & Mirrors toured from 2019-2022 to over 80 cities around the world including sold out shows in London (The Palladium), Paris (Folies Bergère),  New York, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Auckland, Warsaw, Bogotá and more. Her acclaimed drag show NightGowns, founded in 2015, has hosted some of the world’s greatest drag performers and was adapted into a docu-series (NightGowns, 2020). Velour came to international attention in 2017 when she was featured on Season 9 of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

RUN TIME: 90 minutes with no intermission.
This show is all ages with the understanding that it involves some adult language and conversation of mature topics.
