Never underestimate a drag queen!

RuPaul's Drag Race season 14 star Kornbread and Season 8 winner Bob The Drag Queen appear out of drag and in Michael Korte's moving tribute to the Tony-winning musical A Strange Loop. And yes, they're really singing (We had no idea they could!)!

The two perform alongside Anania Williams, Kyle Freeman and Elyn in Korte and Bryson Camper's moving tribute to the Broadway show. The production is wrapping up its Broadway run this upcoming January and follows a Black gay man who is struggling to write a musical – about a Black gay man struggling to write a musical. Meta, we know. In it, Usher fights to overcome a Greek chorus of his intrusive thoughts that tell him he should just give up and write a play for Tyler Perry.

Kornbread celebrated the release of the video on Twitter. "RuPaul won a Tony award for it. So it feels correct to be a part of such a lovely arrangement to THE Broadway Musical: A Strange Loop !!!"


It's struck a chord with Broadway fans around the world, and this medley of the show's songs are already having an impact on listeners. One commenter wrote, "I did not know that I needed to hear this until I heard it. I’m blown away!" Another said, "BOB THE SINGING QUEEN!!!!!!! And I'm here for all her vocal improvement!!!!"

What is the story of A Strange Loop?

According to Vulture, the story is about "a Black gay man named Usher who is trying to write a musical, also called A Strange Loop, about a Black gay man trying to write a musical. Usher is surrounded by a Greek chorus of his obnoxious, self-hating thoughts, which keep insisting that he sell out and write a play for Tyler Perry."

What are the 6 thoughts in Strange Loop?

According to The New Yorker, "the only other characters in the show are Usher’s thoughts."

"One moment, they’re abstract entities—self-loathing, sexual ambivalence, financial mishandling. The next, they take on the shapes of Usher’s religious mother and father, who would like him to write a nice gospel play and, oh, while he’s at it, cut out the 'homosexsh’alities' and stop embarrassing them with his profane music, which their fellow-congregants have started to discover."

Is A Strange Loop funny?

It's a drama with some elements of humor.
