Philly favorite and RuPaul’s Drag Race season 5 queen Alaska Thunderfuck has chosen Philly to world-premiere her new show Stevie Forever, a dragged-out, musical fairy tale from hell that tells the story of Stevie Nicks’ rise to rock goddess fame. It sounds pretty amazing:
In Stevie Forever, RuPaul’s Drag Race finalist and cosmic starlet of stage and screen Alaska invites you to join her as she channels the grand high priestess of rock herself. Alaska will be joined by her stalwart companion and pianist Handsome Jeremy who becomes Stevie’s on-again-off-again love and lifetime musical partner Lindsay Buckingham. Together they retell and relive Stevie’s history as a rock goddess and all-around badass witch. Spells will be cast, curses will be placed, and illicit substances will be consumed while Stevie and Lindsay tear through their all-time classics and re-imagine current hits in timeless Stevie style.
The show will be in town for one night only — June 4th at Voyeur — before making its Off-Broadway premiere in New York. For tickets, go here.
