Sasha Velour’s Big Reveal Live Show! at The Bushnell Theater

Bushnell Theater 166 Capitol Ave, Hartford

Audiences will laugh, cry, and witness an artist at the “top of her game” (Paper). A new guest will also join Sasha in each city. The Big Reveal Live Show! toured the US and Canada earlier this year to enthusiastic sold-out crowds and hits Europe and the UK this Fall. Of the upcoming US dates of the tour, Velour says, “I can’t wait to reach new audiences in US with this show. This show has so much new drag that I’m proud of and I can’t wait to share this show around the country!” The Big Reveal Live Show! follows the publication of The Big Reveal: An Illustrated Manifesto of Drag, Sasha's first book which was called “a rousing tribute to a revolutionary art form and its practitioners (Publishers Weekly). Throughout the show, Sasha embodies core themes from the book ultimately revealing drag to be not only powerfully entertaining but also as a way to transform the world for the better.   For more information
