Official RuPaul’s Drag Race for Playhouse in May

The all new 2019 Werq The World tour of RuPaul’s Drag Race arrives in the UK in May, with the first of two Scottish dates at the Edinburgh Playhouse on May 6, returning to the Glasgow SEC on May 17.

Billed as their biggest and most elaborate production ever, it features the queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race gone all intergalactic in a bid to save the galaxy. Well, the solar system, but what-ever, it’s bound to be heavenly.

The Werq the World Tour sashays into Europe in April and hits up the UK for eight dates between May 3 (Birmingham) and May 19 (Cardiff), interspersed with forays to Dublin and Paris.

Mission leader for the tour – and the show – is Michelle Visage, whose team of intergalactic queens includes Aquaria, Asia O’Hara, Kameron Michaels, Kim Chi, Monét X Change, Naomi Smalls and Violet Chachki.

Their mission is to travel to the sun to save our solar system from a dark entity intent on harnessing the sun’s power – presumably casting the world into eternal (drag free) darkness.

Michelle Visage guides the audience through the universe for a dynamic display of the wonders held by each planet and its regal sovereign.

stratosphere

Werq the World is the official Drag Race tour for a reason,” says Visage. “The show has always been a theatrical production of the highest caliber but in 2019 we’re stepping it up into the stratosphere.

“This show is going to leave fans gagging and I’m not afraid to say that my performance, in particular, will give you life.”

Voss Events – which has productions from Cher and Lady Gaga in its back catalogue – is producing the tour with Drag Race producers World of Wonder and VH1.

cosmic feast

“This is the biggest, most elaborate production we have ever created,” says producer Brandon Voss. “The music, sets, fashion, choreography and lighting are all a cosmic feast for the senses.

“Audiences will be in awe as their favourite queens come together on some incredible numbers.”

Although RuPaul is not appearing of the show, and there is an over-14 years age recommendation, you’ve got to think that Voss has a point.
