RuPaul’s Drag Race season nine contestant and cabaret favorite Alexis Michelle returns to Feinstein’s/54 Below this season with a new act: Alexis, I Am! The show premieres at the midtown venue January 24 at 9:30 PM with subsequent performances February 21, March 21, and April 18.
Fellow Interlochen alum Alexandra Silber will make a special guest appearance at the January 24 performance. Silber was last on Broadway in Fiddler on the Roof and is author of the sequel novel After Anatevka.
Alexis, I Am!, inspired by Michelle’s meditation mantra heard on Instagram, will chart the drag performer’s career from young theatre queen to drag queen, including the thrills and struggles of being in the reality TV spotlight. The act will include tunes made famous by some of Michelle’s favorite divas (including Lady Gaga and Liza Minnelli, who Michelle impersonated on Drag Race).
Brandon James Gwinn and James Will McBride return as music director and producer, respectively.
The first concert takes place on the eve of the premiere of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars' third season. Guest judges for the reality competition's return include Tony winner Kristin Chenoweth and stage and screen favorite Tituss Burgess.
