The biggest drag show in herstory has four new queens. RuPaul’s Drag Race LIVE!, which made its debut in January 2020 at Flamingo Las Vegas, has added to its cast of Drag Race All-Stars. The new cast members, showing off their best assets, are Eureka O’Hara, Jaida Essence Hall, Plastique Tiara, and Trinity K Bonet.
Fan-favorite Eureka O’Hara playfully pokes fun at herself in her intro saying, “I came to slay, play and…where’s the buffet?” Her powerful performances stand up to body shamers. Every time she takes the stage the crowd goes wild and we’re reminded of RuPaul’s own words, “If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love anyone else.”
Viva Drag Vegas! Trinity K Bonet slays on the runway. The Atlanta-based queen and Season 6 All-Star, who released her single, “I’m a Drag Queen” in 2017, exudes confidence and strength on stage and credits Drag Race with saving her life and helping her cope with depression. She’s now using her celebrity to champion causes meaningful to her, talking about mental health and social justice issues, including Black Lives Matter.
With a rotating cast, audiences are guaranteed a different experience every night as the queens mix things up by performing different songs and switching out their over-the-top outfits. Each fabulous show features six of your favorite RuPaul’s Drag Race queens. From the creative team behind the Emmy Award-winning television series RuPaul’s Drag Race, the revue has everything you love about the TV show and then some.
As RuPaul herself says, “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.”
Quick-witted Asia O’Hara hosts and roasts both contestants and audience guests throughout the show. So if you’re sitting up front remember you’re fair game and could find yourself on stage as part of the show.
It’s Britney bitch!! Well, not quite. But Derrick Barry does “Dance Till The World Ends,” spinning like a Britney Spears Instagram post to a melody of hits including “Toxic” and “Gimme More.” The performance by the longtime Britney impersonator is a crowd-pleasing singalong.

Glam ma’am. To RuPaul’s delight, fashion rules the runway. Feathers, sequins, and boas, oh my. Queens, like Kameron Michaels, sport lavish costumes as they werk the runway during the fashion portion of the show making their final push to be crowned the night’s favorite queen.
Abs-olutely perfect. The men of RuPaul’s Drag Race LIVE! are stars in their own right. Burning up the stage with their blistering dance moves. And, by the way, they’re hot as hell.
