Shasha Velour: "Smoke & Mirrors" — LAST DAY

(Mar. 21-31) — "Smoke & Mirrors," the first one-woman show of the Jewishly-thoughtful Fulbright Scholar Sasha Velour (aka Alexander Steinberg,) is an effortless blend of drag, visual art and magic. Velour introduces audiences to a whole new side of her artistry, through 12 dazzling and genre-busting lip-synch performances. You’ll be on the edge of your seat as she explodes into rose petals, vanishes in a poof of smoke, saws herself in half, conjures a rainstorm, even transforms into a tree in front of your eyes (to name just a few). But the real magic is the way that these illusions and deceptions serve to unmask deeper truths, sparking fresh analysis of gender, fame, family and the importance of dreaming big and living life over-the-top.

Featuring the music of Annie Lennox, Whitney Houston, Shirley Bassey, Judy Garland, Celine Dion, Sia, Nina Simone, Le Tigre and more. Video created by Sasha Velour. Costumes designed by long-time collaborator Diego Montoya.
