Overview

High flying and low down, ‘Leave it on the Floor’ is a one of a kind celebration – a gay African-American musical about finding your true family. In the spirit of 'Paris Is Burning’, Sheldon Larry’s audacious, raunchy and big-hearted musical – with songs by Beyonce’s music director Kim Burse and choreography by Beyonce’s dance master Frank Gatson Jr. – takes us into the fabulously funky world of voguing. Here the setting is contemporary downtown L.A. Our hunky, homeless hero Brad, discarded by his homophobic mother, falls in with the members of the ‘House of Eminence’, a troupe of wild and unforgiving dancers and artists ruled by the stern diva Queef Latina, who keeps a careful, loving watch over her makeshift family of runaways and throwaways. When two of her crew fall for Brad, the Queef is royally unamused, and with a dance-off showdown fast approaching, things are going to get seriously heated!
