Australian drag sensation Trevor Ashley returns to New York for two nights only!

THE GREEN ROOM 42 – the intimate concert venue dubbed Broadway’s “off-night hotspot” by The New York Times – will present Australian drag and theater legend Trevor Ashley for two nights only.

Trevor Ashley, (aka TrAshley), best known from the TV hit Queen of the Universe hosted by Graham Norton, is back in the Big Apple for two performances on Thursday, September 14 and Friday, September 15 at 9:30 PM.

The evening features songs from Queen of the Universe, including “Get the Party Started,” “The Rose,” and “River Deep, Mountain High,” in addition to tributes to Shirley Bassey and Liza Minnelli. TrAshley will lift the curtain on what really happens when you travel halfway across the world to shoot a reality television program when you’re a control freak with absolutely no control.

Featuring music director Brian Nash, expect a night of laughs, gay anthems and powerhouse vocals, as Trevor brings his trademark wit and self-deprecation back to New York. Following this show, he’s jetting off to the Lyric Theatre in London’s West End in October, before returning home to Australia for concerts in Perth and Melbourne.

One of Australia’s most sought-after and successful performers, Trevor built a career and following as an actor, writer, director and international queen of cabaret.

(is broken), both of which toured to Vienna, Hong Kong and London’s West End, and in I’m Every Woman for which he won the Sydney Theatre Award.
