A fan favorite from waaaaaaay back in Season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race (the season Jinkx won), the one and only ALYSSA EDWARDS has just announced a tour for this fall..Alyssa Edwards: Memoirs of a Traveling Queen, presented by Obsessed and powered by local production company Five Senses Reeling.
The sassy Texan known for her dance moves (she owns her own dance academy!) will be strutting into Las Vegas, Denver, San Francisco, Portland and yes….SEATTLE!
For three nights!
Miz Edwards will be struttin’ the stage at the Broadway Performance Hall on the Seattle Central College campus on October 14, 15 and 16.
Happily, her annoying arch rival Coco Montrese will NOT be part of this tour. (Damn, that “feud” was freaking annoying…I almost stopped watching Season Five because Coco’s constant drama was such a bore.)
ANYWAYS, here’s all the info you need down below. Tickets go on sale this Friday, August 13th.
