That Friday morning sighting is now one to be expected at the Vegas institution where RuPaul’s Drag Race Live! opened the night before in the theater now named for the brother/sister duo who occupied it the last 11 years, Donny and Marie Osmond. Debuting Jan. 30, the show plays out like an episode of the Emmy Award-winning television series, which is about to start its 12th season. Asia O’Hara acts as “host” of the show, while the other five queens engage in things you’d expect from an episode of Drag Race: a Mini Challenge, a Maxi Challenge, and then the famous segment where RuPaul orders them to “lip sync for your life” to avoid elimination. While the stage numbers are all set to popular music — Britney Spears, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Ciara, Ariana Grande, and more — the show also incorporates four new original songs (including the grand finale “Losing Is the New Winning,” above) co-written by RuPaul, Tom Campbell, and Leland, as well as other video montages and interactive elements with the audience. Oh, and they have a six-man “Pit Crew” (think Thunder Down Underand Magic Mike) who dance, assist in wardrobe reveals, and so much more.
