Chelsea Piers

Age: 29

Location: New York, New York

About:

“Chelsea Piers was the product of a very happy accident when I was promoted from the role of shirtless, male backup dancer to dazzling, drag starlet of the Provincetown drag revue ICONS. I’m a little bit Broadway, a little bit rock ’n’ roll; a highly theatrical queen with a punky edge…an actress with an attitude. I never dreamed, as an aspiring young actor, that lip-syncing to Celine Dion in three pairs of fake eyelashes and five pairs of tights would pay the bills, but I decided to roll with the punches.

As a kid, I was obsessed with pop culture. Be it movies, TV, music, theatre, I was constantly quoting my favorite material and re-enacting my favorite scenes and music videos. I was this weird actor kid who would spend my days rehearsing for plays and musicals and my nights replicating Britney Spears choreography next to my bubble machine. Chelsea Piers is the ultimate realization and juxtaposition of all those things that inspired me and continue to do so. Drag is defiant, subversive, joyful, and gives me a voice to empower the queer community more powerful than I ever imagined. 

My one-woman show, Are You There Ru? It’s Me, Chelsea is returning to The Laurie Beechman Theatre this summer in NYC, playing Provincetown’s Crown & Anchor on July 16th, and Maine Street Ogunquit August 17th & 18th. It’s the project I’m proudest of in my career. The concept is that I find myself dangerously close to missing the Drag Race submission deadline and you watch me scramble to film my audition tape through song. It’s wild! I sing Andrew Lloyd Webber, Kesha…there are celebrity voice over cameos, and I change costumes five times in one hour. Come see it in a city near you!
