“Dorian’s Closet” is a new musical based on the life of the legendary female impersonator Dorian Corey. The story is a fictionalized account of Dorian’s life and what leads to the discovery of a mummified body in her Harlem apartment after her death in the early 1990s. Confronted with ridicule and prejudice, Dorian persisted in her life-long quest for love and fame. From Dorian’s early days in New York City, through her rise to height of the Harlem ball scene and Mother of the House of Corey, “Dorian’s Closet” takes us on a musical journey that explores just how far we will go to make our dreams a reality.
