DRAG: The Musical, written by Alaska alongside her longtime musical partners, the certified platinum songwriter/producer Tomas Costanza and celebrity song stylist Ashley Gordon, clinched the title of Best New Play Or Musical at both the 2022 Broadway World Los Angeles Awards and the 2023 Queerties Award for Live Theater. The production narrates the tale of two competing drag bars entangled in a battle for survival amidst financial hardship

The show which debuted at the Bourbon Room in 2022 features an impressive lineup including New Kids On The Block’s Joey McIntyre, drag luminary Manila Luzon, and Broadway sensation Nick Adams. The cast also includes fan favorites like Jujubee, Jan Sport, Lagoona Bloo, and many others.
