“Smoke & Mirrors,” Sasha Velour’s first one-queen theatre tour, is an effortless blend of drag, visual art, and magic. Velour introduces audiences to a whole new side of her artistry, through 13 dazzling and genre-busting lip-synch performances, all directed and choreographed by the queen herself. You’ll be on the edge of your seat as she explodes into rose petals, vanishes in a poof of smoke, saws herself in half, conjures a rainstorm, even transforms into a tree in front of your eyes (to name just a few). But the real magic is the way that these illusions and deceptions serve to unmask deeper truths, sparking fresh analysis of gender, fame, family, and the importance of dreaming big and living life over-the-top.

Featuring the music of Annie Lennox, Whitney Houston, Shirley Bassey, Judy Garland, Celine Dion, Sia, Nina Simone, Le Tigre and more. Video created by Sasha Velour. Costumes designed by long-time collaborator Diego Montoya.

Sasha Velour’s “Smoke & Mirrors” toured Australia and New Zealand in January 2019, had a sold-out 8-night New York City residency in March 2019, and limited sold-out engagements in Los Angeles and London, to rave reviews.

Following the performance, VIP ticket holders will receive a digital photograph with Sasha Velour.
