"Smoke & Mirrors,” Sasha Velour's first one-queen theatre tour, is an effortless blend of drag, visual art, and magic. Velour introduces audiences to a whole new side of her artistry, through 13 dazzling and genre-busting lip-synch performances, all directed and choreographed by the queen herself.

You’ll be on the edge of your seat as she explodes into rose petals, vanishes in a puff of smoke, saws herself in half, conjures a rainstorm, even transforms into a tree in front of your eyes (to name just a few). But the real magic is the way that these illusions and deceptions serve to unmask deeper truths, sparking fresh analysis of gender, fame, family, and the importance of dreaming big and living life over-the-top.

Production shot

Featuring the music of Annie Lennox, Whitney Houston, Shirley Bassey, Judy Garland, Celine Dion, Sia, Nina Simone, Le Tigre and more. Costumes designed by long-time collaborator Diego Montoya.

The drag icon is constantly reinventing herself, and it's our privilege to watch her do it.

What the critics say

[An] inventive, surprisingly openhearted show…Expressionist performance-art illustration.
- The New York Times
The intensely personal [Smoke & Mirrors] shows what a top-of-her-game queen Velour really is, both as an artist and as a storyteller.
- Paper Magazine
A blend of music, magic tricks and runway-worthy looks.
- V Magazine
‘Smoke & Mirrors’ takes the traditional drag show, if there is such a thing, and fragments and distorts it in a funhouse mirror, to surprising and beguiling effect.
- The Columbus Dispatch
Velour has pulled out all the stops.

In 1866, Liverpool Empire began its life as The Prince of Wales Theatre and Opera House and was run by gas light and steam power. The name changed to what it is today in 1895, so has had its name for over 100 years. It went through many refurbishments, before being bought by ATG and the theatre now stands about a quarter size bigger than it originally stood.
