Written by Tarell Alvin McCraney
Directed by Summer L. Williams

Presented in collaboration with Company One Theatre
From the Oscar-winning writer of Moonlight, Wig Out! is the catwalk showdown of the year! When the House of Light is challenged to a surprise ball by the rival House of Di’abolique, they’ve got to leave it all on the floor to defend their family’s Legendary status. Fueled by a sizzling R&B playlist, Wig Out! is a divine exploration of drag ball culture, chosen family, and the desire to be desired.
