Leave It On The Floor

Paris is Burning meets Glee in this lively and uplifting musical drama set in the Los Angeles ball scene. Brad, a black gay youth thrown out of the house by his mother, rediscovers the meaning of “family” when he gets involved with the House of Eminence, a struggling, ragtag group headed by the unforgettable Queen Latina (played by Miss Barbie-Q). Brad finds that he’s got a lot to learn about what it takes to walk the walk and talk the talk in this underground community. Through all the laughter, tears, and queens in 5-inch stilettos, Brad overcomes obstacles and heart aches in order to make a home with his loving, caring drag family. Featuring music by Kim Burse (Beyonce's music director) and choreography by Frank Gastson, Jr. (Beyonce's dance master), Leave It On The Floor teaches us that no matter what the trouble of the day, when night falls, and the disco ball spins, you got to leave it on the floor.
