Meet America’s first drag queen presidential candidate, Ms. Joan Jett Blakk, as she announces her bid to run for President of the United States. It’s Chicago, 1992, and with the AIDS crisis at its height, Joan and the newly formed Queer Nation Chicago have an urgent agenda. Get ready for an exhilarating adventure as Joan sets off on a dangerous journey to drag queer politics out of the closet and into a future where all are visible and all have a place at the table. Inspired (but not bound) by true events, MS. BLAKK FOR PRESIDENT takes you into the heart and mind of one of Chicago’s most singular and radical citizens. Written by ensemble members Tina Landau and Tarell Alvin McCraney, this interactive new work is part campaign rally, part nightclub performance, part confessional — and all party. Get involved at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Upstairs Theatre.
