Staying a legend in this town can be a drag. That's the tag line in this one act comedy by John Mark Lucas that has five "older" drag queens, or celebrity impersonators, in a career therapy session. When their Vegas audiences are no longer buying tickets to the shows they've been doing for 40 years, Cher, Liza, Bette M, Miss Ross and Barbra S all decide to leave show business and come together to try and learn new job skills. Diana Ross working in an office cubicle? Cher as a dog groomer? What will it take to get these legends back in their heels? Directed by Joan Kane.

On the final night of a magician’s life, she seeks to pass on her knowledge to an heir, while at the same time playing a last game of hearts with a puckish fairy spirit in which they use four lovers as pawns.
