RuPaul’s Drag Race continues its tradition of bringing theatre favorites to the runway with its lineup of guest judges for the upcoming third All Stars season. The roster of stars joining Michelle Visage, Carson Kressley, Ross Mathews, and RuPaul herself at the judges’ table includes Tony winner Kristin Chenoweth, stage and screen favorite Tituss Burgess, and Broadway alums Todrick Hall, Vanessa Williams, and Vanessa Hudgens.
The Emmy-winning series returns to VH1 January 25 at 8 PM ET.
Hall, who recently concluded a limited engagement in Broadway’s Chicago and previously starred in Kinky Boots, served as a rotating judge on the second season of All Stars. Additional guest judges will include Chris Colfer, Adam Lambert, Marc Jacobs, Shay Mitchell, Nancy Pelosi, Constance Zimmer, Emma Bunton, Garcelle Beauvais, Jeffrey Bower-Chapman, and Nicole Byer.
Drag Race has frequently infused its weekly challenges with a Broadway sensibility, including a live musical (“Shade: The Rusical” in season six) and myriad contestants offering drag impersonations of stage favorites (including Carol Channing, Liza Minnelli, and Eartha Kitt).
