Sasha Velour presents an immersive evening of drag, storytelling, and live art, in celebration of her newly released debut 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 and an in-person conversation with special guest stars Lucy Stoole (April 29) and Tenderoni (April 30). 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.
Copies of the book will be available for sale in the lobby, or you can get a copy in advance by ordering online: The Big Reveal: An Illustrated Manifesto of Drag.
The show runs for 90 minutes with no intermission. The Big Reveal Live Show! is all ages with the understanding that it involves some adult language and conversation of mature topics.
