The upcoming Off-Broadway transfer of London's all-drag murder mystery Death Drop has postponed its engagement indefinitely. Previously scheduled to begin previews in June, the production subsequently announced a September 20 first preview at New World Stages.
The producers of the comedy are currently working to announce dates for the inaugural U.S. production. Ticket buyers should return to point of purchase for refunds.
Scheduled to star in the Off-Broadway bow were 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. The work is based on an idea by
Christopher D. Clegg and written by Holly Stars.
