Start your engines because the biggest drag production in the world is coming down under. The RuPaul’s Drag Race “WERQ THE WORLD 2020” tour is coming to Australia in 2020, serving all the charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent of the phenomenally popular RuPaul’s Drag Race TV shows.

WERQ THE WORLD is an all-new live production from the same companies that create the television shows, and will hit Australian shores from Tuesday February 4 to Friday February 14 next year, and each show will be an astounding showcase of talent.

“WERQ THE WORLD 2020 is the biggest, most elaborate production we have ever created,” says Brandon Voss, the show’s producer. “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 to slay the stage”.

Michelle Visage herself will be hosting the shows, which will star Aquaria, the queen who took out season 10. By its own description, the show will “guide audiences through new galaxies in the universe for a dynamic experience of the wonders held by each planet and its regal sovereign.”

Whatever that means, we’re 👏 here 👏 for 👏it.
