‘Georgia McBride’ having a run at Theatre Nova

Show Announcement June 12, 2017

ANN ARBOR, Mich.–Theatre NOVA, Ann Arbor’s only residential professional theatre company, presents “The Legend of Georgia McBride” by Matthew Lopez, the smashing success transferred from The Ringwald Theatre in Ferndale.

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, walking in heels, and himself.

The production features Nick Yocum, Vince Kelley, Richard Payton, Meredith Deighton, and Joe Bailey and is directed by Brandy Joe Plambeck. The design team includesStephen Carpenter (scenic design), Vince Kelley (costume design), Michael Ameloot (auxiliary costumes), Brandy Joe Plambeck (sound design), Dan Walker (lighting design) and Alisa Marie Chirco (makeup).

Ann Arbor area audiences can see what Ferndale audiences have been raving about as The Ringwald’s highly successful production of Matthew Lopez’s “The Legend of GeorgiaMcBride” is transferred to the Theatre NOVA space. “Yes, there are many laughs. But there also are some very serious and poignant moments that, dare I say, might cause the audience to shed an involuntary tear or two?” -EncoreMichigan.com.
