Fantasy Casting: Drag Race Season 9 Stars as Broadway Stars
There are only two things that we live for here at TodayTix: RuPaul’s Drag Race and theater. To marry our two loves, we’ve imagined each of the top contestants of Season 9 of RuPaul’s Drag Race as stars of currently-playing Broadway shows.
Trinity Taylor – Chicago
The body is here! This sexy queen will fit right in with the girls of “Cell Block Tango” (and into those tiny costumes too.)
Shea Coulée – Hamilton
This queen from Chicago came here to slay, not to play – she is a quadruple threat who can rap, dance, act and turn out a lewk. She deserves to steal the scene in the ensemble of the most athletic hip hop extravaganza on Broadway: Hamilton, or honestly, play the titular role?
Sasha Velour – The Great Comet
This brainy beauty spent time studying in Russia as a Fulbright scholar and snatched the crown with her iconic lip syncs. Her intellect, language skills, andcreative lip syncing mean she would kill it as a Russian aristocrat.
Peppermint – Waitress
Peppermint has a million-dollar personality, gorgeous smile, and killer lip sync-acting skills you cannot take your eyes off of. We think she would be oh-so-sweet as the leading role in this musical about baking pies and finding yourself.
Alexis Michelle – Wicked
Alexis’ green look for the Michelle Visage roast episode didn’t get love from the judges, but it would be perfect for a turn as the belty Wicked Witch of the West.
Nina Bo’Nina Brown – Cats
Nina Bo’Nina had one of the most unique makeup aesthetics of any queen to ever grace the show — feral, almost cartoon-like, and unforgettable. She has the perfect look, body, and dance moves for Broadway’s beloved musical featuring singing felines.
Aja + Valentina – War Paint
A double feature! Aja made drag race history with her passionate monologue to Valentina in Untucked: “You’re perfect, you’re beautiful, you look like Linda Evangelista, you’re a model!” Her monologue even got turned into a banging’ club track. These two deserve to play the iconic rivals Helena Rubinstein and Elizabeth Arden, two beauty titans competing for power.
Farrah Moan – Anastasia
We unfortunately didn’t get to see too much of this pretty queen’s personality on the show, but you can’t deny she always looks like a freakin’ princess…and she can definitely cry on command! Let’s give her the star turn she deserves as Anastasia, Russian duchess.
