Varla Jean Merman Goes to the Theater

Varla and Vinsantos

This series hosted by Varla Jean Merman (in and out of drag), presents a wide variety of folks along the LGTBQ spectrum who call New Orleans home. Through interviews and funny adventures, we’ll follow Jeff, Varla, and several locals to gain a deeper insight into who they are and why they love New Orleans.

On the final episode of this series, Varla meets up with fellow drag artist Vinsantos who takes us to her doll shop and wows us at the theater. Along the journey, they make stops at Funeral Gallery, Royal Street, The St. Claude Corridor, and Le Petit Theatre. Follow along and share your story with #OneTimeInNola.
