Florida Studio Theatre Presents Mainstage Musical Comedy, The Legend of Georgia McBride

Arts & Culture

Florida Studio Theatre (FST) proudly presents The Legend of Georgia McBride, a heartfelt, music-filled play by Tony Award-winning playwright Matthew Lopez. Called  “A stitch-in-your-side funny new comedy” by The New York Times and “Incredibly entertaining” by BroadwayWorld, The Legend of Georgia McBride is a regional theatre favorite that celebrates making oneself heard, individuality, and self-expression. The Legend of Georgia McBride will run in FST’s Gompertz Theatre starting Wednesday, April 6. Single tickets are now on sale at 941.366.9000 or floridastudiotheatre.org.

The Legend of Georgia McBride tells the story of Casey, a young Elvis impersonator struggling to make ends meet—he can’t pay his rent, and he just found out that his wife, Jo, is pregnant. Casey’s situation becomes more desperate when he is fired from his job performing at a small-town Florida dive bar. Eddie, the bar owner, brings in Miss Tracy Mills and her B-level drag show to replace Casey’s Elvis act in hopes that it will revive his struggling business. When Miss Mills’ co-star, Rexy, is unable to perform at the last minute, Casey steps in, and realizes he has a lot to learn about show business—and himself.
