Join NYC sensation Sweetie on a comedic romp as the interactive game show musical comedy showcases drag performers, special guest co-hosts and prizes for the audience. This weekly changing insane roster of talent and wits brings camp and zany fun to off-broadway by all walks of life. The ‘interactive musical game show comedy’ has contestants male and female, from all walks of life pitted against each other in a fabulous battle for drag superstardom.  Since 2005, The Ultimate Drag Off has been entertaining audiences in two previous successful off-off Broadway runs in NYC. Now it makes its official Off-Broadway debut! Hosted by NYC actor Daniel Booth in his larger-than-life persona, Sweetie (Wig Out, Charmed Life, Project Runway, Starbooty). The colorful ‘cast’ of contestants is an ever-changing weekly roster with some of your favorite and undiscovered talent from across the country in a wacky glamour-fest with brainy categories, comedic camp and live musical performances.

Audiences can expect special surprise guest co-hosts from Stage, Film/TV and NYC nightlife. In the form of 70’s game shows such as ‘Let’s Make a Deal’ and ‘The Gong Show’ mixed with ‘America’s Got Talent’, this laugh out loud romp is a NYC treasure where the audience decides the outcome of the evening and gets to bestow the winner with the coveted ‘Drag Off’ crown and send the losers home with lovely parting gifts.
