The musical, which tells the story of two rival drag bars that go head-to-head for survival amidst financial troubles, is co-written and conceived by songwriter-producer Tomas Costanza and celebrity song stylist Ashley Gordon, and directed by Emmy nominee Spencer Liff. There are reportedly plans to adapt the album into a live stage show later this year.

A single from the album, "Drag is Expensive" will be available for streaming May 6.

“At its core, the musical is inspired by the family bond that drag queens have together," shares Alaska in a statemtn. "And just like family, we may not always get along, but we find a way to support one another and love one another. I want to bring people into the world of Drag. It's a world that might not always be glamorous and sparkly. In fact, at times it can be slimy and disgusting. But I love it and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.”
