The Legend of Georgia McBride
February 11-20, 2022
By Mathew Lopez
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—and himself. Crowd-pleasing and side-splittingly funny, The Legend of Georgia McBride is a gender-bending, feel good tribute to the art of drag.
Cash bar available beginning at 7pm. Show at 8pm. Masks covering the mouth and nose are required when not actively drinking, regardless of vaccination status.

Performed in rep
The Toledo Rep and Actors Collaborative Toledo join together to present their first ever repertory productions with the staging of Our Town by Thorton Wilder and Middletown by Will Eno. Audiences will have several opportunities to see both performances offered during the run on alternating dates.
Our Town, Thorton Wilder’s timeless classic and quintessential masterpiece of the American stage tells the story of life in Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire at the turn of the 20th century. Here it is paired with Will Eno’s Middletown, a deeply moving and funny play that explores the universe of a small American town at the beginning of the 21st century. From opposite ends of a tumultuous one hundred years, two powerful, touching and sometimes funny plays look at our American life, how we see ourselves today and how we look back on the values that have shaped who we are. In Our Town, we see two young people, George Gibbs and Emily Webb, as their lives entwine and intersect with other denizens of their small town.
In Middletown, a friendship between longtime resident, John Dodge, and a new arrival, Mary Swanson, intersects with the inhabitants of Middletown in strange and poignant ways. From the Middletown local library to outer space and points between, or from Rebecca Gibbs window in Grover’s Corners as she marvels at the universe and the mind of God, Our Town/Middletown is a journey to places you won’t forget.
Masks covering the mouth and nose are required inside the building at all times, regardless of vaccination status.
