RuPaul's Drag Race Fan Favourite Joins RENT Live Cast, Drops Massive All Stars Spoiler
She's one of the most infamous queens in Drag Race herstory, but Valentina may have just spilled more than tea, hunny.
Fox's next live musical extravaganza, a performance of Rent, announced the cast this morning and it includes season nine queen Valentina.
The rest of the cast announced includes Kiersey Clemons as Joanne Jefferson, Brandon Victor Dixon as Tom Collins, Jordan Fisher as Mark Cohen, Vanessa Hudgens as Maureen Johnson, Tinashe as Mimi Marquez and Brennin Hunt as Roger Davis. Valentina rounds out the cast as Angel Dumont Schunard.
The Greatest Showman star and Tony Award nominee Keala Settle will also be part of the production, singing a solo from one of the show's most iconic songs "Seasons of Love".
Rent is the latest in the trend of televised live musical performances which has included Jesus Christ Superstar, Peter Pan, The Wiz and Hairspray.
It's also not High School Musical's Vanessa Hudgens' first live TV musical after she starred in Fox's Grease: Live alongside Aaron Tveit and Carly Rae Jepsen.
Set in New York, Rent follows seven struggling artists as they try to follow their dreams, it's based loosely on Puccini's opera La Bohème and it launched several of the original Broadway Cast's careers like Anthony Rapp, Taye Diggs, Jesse L. Martin and Idina Menzel.
And while the cast sounds incredible, the announcement also came with some interesting news for any Drag Race fans out there. The press release announcing Valentina's addition to the cast also let it slip that she's going to be part of All Stars 4.
It's not the biggest shock, with the drag detectives of Reddit assuming she would be part of the fourth season that sees queens from previous seasons return for a second shot at the crown.
So there you go, we got two announcements in one.
