Saying “goodbye” is never easy. Especially when three of the most important things in your life are all ending at once. Step into the world of Lovely Uranus this summer, a drag queen who is struggling with relationships, work and life in the Stone Cottage Theatre’s world premiere of “A Lovely Goodbye” by Alejandro de la Costa.
“The Lovely Goodbye” is about Uranus, a famous Dallas drag queen, and the problems he’s going through. He fell in love with a man named Keith, who is unfortunately already in a relationship. He also loves his job at a club, but it’s closing and he’s having a hard time finding a new job. In addition, his favorite brand of mascara is being discontinued, and it is impossible to find a suitable replacement! Finally, he has developed some serious health issues, which may prevent him from doing what he loves most (drag!) ever again!
This funny, heartbreaking and extremely entertaining play will be showing at Stone Cottage Theatre at the Addison Conference and Theatre Center from July 26 through August 12. Show times will be at 8 p.m. Thursdays – Saturdays, as well as a special Sunday matinee at 2 p.m. on August 12. Make sure to leave the kids at home, as “The Lovely Goodbye” is rated NC17 due to language, male nudity and adult situations.
