The documentary throws the limelight on the participating queens as they slay the stage at the Flaming with their beauty, charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent. This particular live show, directed by RuPaul and Jamal Sims, kicked off at the Las Vegas Flamingo resort in January 2020 and highlighted a number of original songs from the Drag Race icons.
Speaking about this gig to Entertainment Weekly, RuPaul said: “I think it checks every box, from the girls who are on stage – the girls who were chosen to be in the debut – to the storyline, which is a narrative that the audience understands because it follows what our show does from beginning to end.” And in ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race: Vegas Revue’, we follow the six queens as they visit casinos and meet RuPaul himself. There are also scenes of romance between season 10 queens Kameron Michael and Asia O’Hara! As outlined by VH1: “VH1’s new series will have you getting your jush and hitting the jackpot”!
