If you’re attending the Haters Roast — The Shady Tour, a touring stage show featuring drag queens from the hit TV show RuPaul’s Drag Race, be forewarned. It’s a triple dose of hilarious insult-filled comedy: It’s going to be hater-y, roast-y and shady. Good thing this event is held in a library, because there is going to be plenty of reading.
Scheduled to grace the Mon Valley with their glittery, fabulous selves are Latrice Royale (season 4), William (season 4), Jinkx Monsoon (season 5) and Trinity Taylor (season 9), plus three queens — Trixie Mattel (season 7), Thorgy Thor (season 8) and Aja (season 9) — who have just enjoyed their second chances at legacy on the third season of RuPaul’s Drag Race: All-Stars. The event is hosted by the tart-tongued Ginger Minj (season 7).
It’s an all-ages show, but the poster warns “adult comedy,” so judge the tolerance of your friends and family accordingly. The queens will no doubt have plenty to say about each other, but if you want to risk getting burned yourself, pony up for the VIP ticket which includes a pre-show meet-and-greet.
