Award-Winning DRAG: The Musical back by popular demand

DRAG: The Musical will return to The Bourbon Room in Hollywood for a limited run of performances this March (March 15-30, see below for specific dates/times). The LA run of dates precedes a highly anticipated run of performances in NYC in fall 2024.

DRAG: The Musical, written by drag superstar Alaska Thunderfuck with her longtime musical collaborators, certified platinum songwriter/producer Tomas Costanza and celebrity song stylist Ashley Gordon, won Best New Play Or Musical at the 2022 BroadwayWorld Los Angeles Awards and the 2023 Queerties Award for Live Theater and tells the story of two rival drag bars that go head-to-head for survival amidst financial troubles.

Directed and choreographed by Emmy-nominated Spencer Liff, with lighting design by Jared A. Sayeg, costume design by Marco Marco, scenic design by Stephen Gifford, and projection design by Aaron Rhyne, the 2024 LA run of performances will include a superstar cast including Alaska Thunderfuck, Nick Adams, Jujubee, Jan Sport, Lagoona Bloo, Nick Laughlin, Jamie Torcellini and J. Elaine Marcos, and more to be announced.

Along with Tomas Costanza, DRAG: The Musical is also produced by the producers of five-time, Tony-nominated sensation Rock of Ages (one of the longest running shows in Broadway history), and the owners of The Bourbon Room, Matthew and Hillary Weaver, Scott Prisand, and Janet Billig Rich. Additional co-production provided by Concord Theatricals, Paolo and Jodie Coppola, Aron and Gabe Alves-Tomko, Timothy Boynton, and Alvin Providence along with General Management team Kevin Bailey and Matthew Herrmann. Additional executive producers include David Charpentier, Jacob Slane and Ryan Aceto on behalf of Producer Entertainment Group.

Every day someone asks me, When is DRAG: The Musical coming back to the Bourbon Room?,” said Alaska Thunderfuck 5000. “ I finally have an answer for them and I can’t wait. I’m honored and excited to bring this musical that I love so dearly back to life, this time in LA. And next time… who knows? Maybe New York?”

“Get ready to rock, Hollywood! The award-winning DRAG: The Musical is back for three epic weeks at the Bourbon Room, and it’s gonna be a show that will blow your glittery socks off,” said Tomas Costanza. “We’ve got DRAG superstars, Alaska Thunderfuck, Jujubee, Jan Sport, Lagoona Bloo, and the Broadway powerhouse Nick Adams—all ready to blow the roof off this joint before we take this party to NYC for an open ended residency. It’s gonna be a legendary celebration of Punk Rock, Drag Culture, Broadway Artistry, and the power of Unapologetic Storytelling.”
