So, when Elvis leaves the building and a drag show moves in, The King transforms into an all-out queen. With some snappy zingers and dance-worthy numbers, this wildly entertaining story challenges assumptions with extraordinary humor and depth. $25+. 2 p.m. 222 East Monroe St. Phoenix, AZ; herbergertheater.org // @herbergertheater
