Hollywood glamour meets queer performance art in this tour-de-force portrayal of Gay Pride pioneer ‘Joe’ Carstairs, the 1926 World Speedboat record holder. Legere plays cross-dresser Joe Carstairs and seven of her girlfriends including: Tallulah Bankhead, Marlene Dietrich, Billie Holiday and Mabel Mercer. SPEED QUEEN, a trans-disciplinary play, uses wearable sculpture, dance, theater and nude lesbian films to tell a story of heartbreak, heroism, and love. This Dixon Place production is made possible, in part, with public funds from NY State Council on the Arts w/the support of Gov Andrew Cuomo & the NY State Legislature.
