The Vineyard Theatre presents the world premiere of the new play Wig Out! by Tarrell Alvin McCraney -- author of the acclaimed play, The Brothers Size and the first recipient of The Vineyard's Paula Vogel Playwriting Award in 2007. Tina Landau directs.
Set nearly twenty years after Madonna's "Vogue" topped music charts and "Paris Is Burning" filled movie theaters, Wig Out! is a fierce and intoxicating new play which tells of two competing drag houses, and the loves, loyalties, and dreams within each that draw their members together and apart.
Vineyard Theatre hosts "The Stunt and Show" -- a one-night-only runway event to celebrate its production of Tarell Alvin McCraney's Wig Out! on October 1. Beginning at 8pm, theatergoers will be invited to show off their unique style on The Vineyard's red carpet runway prior to attending the special late-night 9:00pm performance of Wig Out!, a limited number of $25.00 rush tickets available to theatergoers in drag on October 1st only.
