Two new queens are joining the cast this year — Season 10 winner Aquaria and Season 14 contestant Jorgeous. Meanwhile, Season 10 winner Jaida Essence Hall will be returning to the show. They’ll be joined by Season 9 and 10 star Eureka O’Hara.
Performances take place Thursday through Monday at 9:30 p.m., with tickets starting at $49. Shows return to the Flamingo on Thursday, January 19. Tickets are currently on sale for performances running through the end of the year.
