The scripts – crafted by (among others) Steven Canals, Our Lady J and Janet Mock tell stories that are moving, sometimes heartbreaking and always authentic. And the cast…serving 10s across the board includes the gorgeous Indya Moore, the statuesque Dominique Jackson the amazing Mj Rodriguez and the actor for whom mere words are not enough, Billy Porter.
Oh, and Drag Race’s Jiggly Caliente too!
The cherry on top of all of this is the soundtrack, packed with the club hits of the late 80s and early 90s that serves as pulsing rhythm of the New York ball scene.
