The upcoming Off-Broadway transfer of London's all-drag murder mystery Death Drop has postponed its start, with previews now beginning September 20 ahead of an October 2 opening night at New World Stages. Previously scheduled to begin later this month, the production is delaying due to scheduling issues.
Still scheduled to star in the Off-Broadway bow are RuPaul's Drag Race stars Jujubee, Willam, and Shuga Cain, along with show writer Stars, Kiki Ball-Change, Peachez Iman Cummings, and Wang Newton.
Set on Tuck Island in 1991 at Lady von Fistenberg's gathering to celebrate Princess Diana and Prince Charles' 10th anniversary, Death Drop is a classic murder mystery whodunnit—but with drag queens. The West End run featured a frequently changing cast of Drag Race stars and local drag performers throughout its run, and with "cast subject to change" Off-Broadway, a similar setup is expected as the show makes its North American debut. The work is based on an idea by Christopher D. Clegg and written by Holly Stars.
