Beginning in January 2020, the residency plans to take over The Flamingo for an eight-month run. It is directed by RuPaul herself and Jamal Sims.
It's going to be "the most sickening eleganza extravaganza in Las Vegas herstory", with RuPaul announcing at DragCon NYC: "'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.”
According to reps at World Of Wonder, the residency features original music, world-class performances, and all the self-awareness and attitude of the TV show.
You can expect to see Aquaria, Asia O'Hara, Coco Montrese, Derek Barry, Eureka O'Hara, Naomi Smalls, Yvie Oddly, Kim Chi, Kameron Michaels, India Farrah, Kahanna Montrese, and Shannel in rotation throughout the show's run. Seven queens (a constantly changing cast) will feature in each performance.
