Sasha Velour Hits The Road, Bringing Us “Smoke & Mirrors”…And So Much More

Sasha Velour is stepping back into the spotlight this fall, and she’s taking it nationwide. With her first one-queen show Smoke & Mirrors, she is embarking on a divinely dynamic journey to celebrate it; a twenty seven stop tour of cities all over North America! Directed in direct collaboration with the House of Velour, this will be Velour’s first solo tour since grabbing the winner’s crown on RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 10. 

The description of the show is simple; it is an “effortless blend of drag, visual art, and magic”. This one of a kind queen introduces audiences to a “whole new side of her artistry” through thirteen dazzling and genre busting lip sync performances. The website promises Velour “vanishing in a poof of smoke”, channeling her inner circus performer and “sawing herself in half”, and of course, “exploding into rose petals” (which will be forever synonymous with Velour and her career after her rose petal covered win during the Drag Race S10 finale)! 

 

“I am literally and figuratively shaking with excitement to embark on my first solo theater tour with Smoke & Mirrors! This production has been years in the making, and is without a doubt the most personal and honest I have ever been on stage,” Velour exclusively told EW.com

“I hope Smoke & Mirrors can be a new introduction of myself, as not only a crown-wearing drag queen, but also a real person with a very specific taste in colors! “What really makes me proud of this show is when people tell me that Smoke & Mirrors inspired them to start painting again, to write their first novel, or to send in an application to their dream job. Some have even said it made them feel a sense of community, or helped them deal with grief or depression,” Velour continues. Smoke & Mirrors is about ‘illusions,’ sure, but sometimes illusions are just tools to understand and cope with reality, to uncover the truth of who we are, or to bring some of our dreams into the spotlight.”
