THE GREEN ROOM 42 – the intimate concert venue dubbed Broadway’s “off-night hotspot” by The New York Times – will present the nightclub debut of Blair St. Clair, the drag star, recording artists and vocalist, best known for their appearances on “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 10 and All Stars 5, on Thursday, February 2 at 7:00 PM and Friday, February 3 at 9:30 PM“Legally Blair,” a new show about their life, liberty, and the pursuit of dreaming wide awake, is an evening of laughter, song, and dance. Blair is teaming up with accomplished director Ben Rimalower (Countess and FriendsLeslie Kritzer is Patti LuPone at Les Mouches) and Musical Director and Arranger Eric Svejcar (Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris), who leads a trio of musicians. This musical revue takes the audience on a journey through some of Broadway’s greatest songs and a glimpse at Blair like you’ve never seen them before.

“Writing and rehearsing for ‘Legally Blair’ has been a passion project of love for me,” comments Blair. “It’s been my avenue for getting back into theatre and getting the chance to sing and act. All of the leading ladies I grew up idolizing helped shape who Blair, as a character, is today. It’s been my biggest dream to perform on Broadway, but, as a non-binary performer, those opportunities are limited. I hope people see this show and understand what it is that I do and who I am as an actor.”

Blair St. Clair, who appeared on “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 10 and All Stars 5 (Top 4), is an accomplished drag queen, singer, and actor.
