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, and Creme Fatale.
Due to an increasing audience demand, Nightgowns is set to embark on an international tour in Spring 2019 that will feature cast regulars as well as outstanding guest drag artists local to each city, creating what Velour calls a "scintillating traveling circus of drag."
