About This Show

The legendary drag queens of the House of Light only come to walk the runway when they are sent for, and a rival drag house has SENT! The challenge: "Cinderella" ball. At midnight. TONIGHT. As they prepare to serve runway realness, we take a look behind the sequined curtain at the dazzling world of the African American drag ball culture. Ensemble member Tarell Alvin McCraney, fresh off an Oscar win for Moonlight, joins the cast of his pageant play WIG OUT!, a divine exploration of finding your identity, owning your sexuality and building your family.
