Step right up and prepare yourself to be amazed, dazzled and possibly disturbed! Drag superstar and erstwhile carny. Varla Jean Merman is coming to town with three rings stuffed with fun…and all she needs is a big top! This circus-themed show is filled with jaw-dropping videos, awe-inspiring songs, and death-defying wigs. With “Under A Big Top”, Varla is guaranteed to lift spirits (and possibly your wallet) in this evening of high-flying fun.
Varla Jean Merman (aka Jeffery Roberson Loe) starred in the musical Lucky Guy opposite Leslie Jordan in New York in 2011 at the Little Shubert Theatre, prompting The New York Times to rave, “If Carol Burnett and Harvey Korman had stood in front of the right pair of funhouse mirrors, they might have resembled Ms. Merman and Mr. Jordan in stature as well as comedic talent.” More recently, Jeffery starred in the films Hush Up, Sweet Charlotte, Girls Will Be Girls, and Varla Jean and the Mushroomheads.
