RuPaul’s Drag Race Live!, which was announced during RuPaul’s DragCon in New York City this weekend, will be directed by RuPaul and choreographer Jamal Sims. The show will feature a rotating cast of beloved queens, including Aquaria, Asia O’Hara, Coco Montrese, Derrick Barry, Eureka O’Hara, India Ferrah, Kahanna Montrese, Kameron Michaels, Kim Chi, Naomi Smalls, Shannel, and Yvie Oddly.
“RuPaul’s Drag Race Live! is an immersive, interactive thrill-ride for everyone who loves to laugh, dance, and sing-along when a fabulous drag queen shakes her padded ass on stage,” RuPaul said of the new show.
The live show launches at the Flamingo Las Vegas in January 2020 and “will be the most sickening eleganza extravaganza in Las Vegas history,” according to a press release from World of Wonder. Fans can expect slapstick comedy, dazzling looks, over-the-top singing and dancing, fan-favorite music from past season, and twists and turns all along the way.
“The times that we’re in are so dark and honestly I believe that Drag Race in general promotes a message of love,” Sims told Billboard, “and I think this is another opportunity to spread it.”
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, September 13 at noon EST. Find tickets, a full schedule, and more information here.
