“RuPaul’s Drag Race” Queens are Sashaying to Drive-In Theaters This Summer

In the immortal words of Alyssa Edwards and Tatianna: Shut up and drive.

Start your engines—literally!

Live drag shows have been on pause for months thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, but that is about to change this summer. Voss Events has announced a new live experience, Drive ’N Drag, starring some of the most popular queens from RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Acid Betty, Aquaria, Asia O’Hara, Gigi Goode, Kameron Michaels, Kim Chi, Monét X Change, Naomi Smalls, Plastique, Vanessa Vanjie, Violet Chachki, and Yvie Oddly are sashaying to drive-in theaters where they will perform live on stage, with their sickening routines broadcast on the theater’s giant screens. Sound from the stage will be pumped through every car via FM transmitters.

And in case your orange Tic Tacs don’t hold you over, there will be gourmet food trucks featuring tasty treats from the Voss Events’ Drag Brunch menu.

“Our Werq the World tour typically plays inside large theaters and arenas,” says producer Brandon Voss, “but we’ve moved the show outside to continue providing much needed entertainment during these difficult times. Not even a pandemic can keep a queen from ruling the stage. The drag show must go on!”

The outdoor summer concert series will hold court July 17-19 at the Garden State Plaza in Paramus, New Jersey (20 minutes outside of New York City), and July 24-26 in Los Angeles. Multiple shows will run all weekend long from 12pm to 11pm.

Don’t get your tucking panties in a bunch if you don’t live near NYC or LA. Additional cities and dates are in the works and will be announced soon.

Tickets are available now on the Voss Events website, but if you plan on going, you better get that learner’s permit now because we all know queer people can’t drive.

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
