June 23, 2019 @ 6:00 pm

6pm: Cash bar opens
7pm: Showtime

In conjunction with Be Seen: Portrait Photography Since Stonewall, drag superstar Varla Jean Merman pitches a tent for one night only at the venerable Wadsworth Atheneum. This daffy diva delights with jaw-dropping videos, high-flying notes, and death-defying wigs. Varla Jean’s circus-themed extravaganza is a PETA-approved show that is best enjoyed without children.

Collaboration between the Wadsworth and TheaterWorks.
