Nightgowns is a world-renowned theatrical drag showcase dedicated to celebrating exceptional drag performers of all backgrounds. Known as the "drag artist's drag show," Nightgowns is an inclusive creative platform that provides drag queens, drag kings, AFAB, trans and gender nonconforming drag performers a stage to create the show of their dreams, giving audiences a fresh, personal, and truly queer night of theater.
Nightgowns was born as a monthly showcase in Brooklyn but it has since toured theaters around the world, selling out houses in London, Los Angeles and a recent stint at Manhattan’s Terminal 5. The core cast is comprised of Velour, Untitled Queen, Vander Von Odd, Neon Calypso, Miss Malice, and Sasha Colby. Notable past guests include: Lypsinka, Justin Vivian Bond, Amanda Lepore, Latrice Royale, Aja, Shea Couleé, Bob the Drag Queen, Hungry, Cheddar Gorgeous, Vigor Mortis, and Creme Fatale.

Nightgowns is coming to Quibi in 2020! Part performance documentary, part portrait of the artist, we’ll watch Sasha work with each member of her weird and wonderful ensemble to craft the lip sync performances of their wildest dreams. Each installment draws us to one performer in particular, and reveals their daily life, process, and backstory, culminating in a 2-3 minute made-for-mobile visual expression of their live number, directed by legendary music video director Sophie Muller. The result will be something new: live drag, designed for the screen. Iconic, shareable, must-watch performances that redefine what drag can be.
The series debuts in 2020, Executive Produced by Sasha Velour and produced by the Academy Award-nominated producers at The Documentary Group.
