Within the realm of RuPaul’s Drag Race alums, performers Chad Michaels and Derrick Barry stand out for several of the same reasons: they both use (at least part of) their birth names, they both found substantial success before appearing on the reality series, and they’ve both perfected the art of celebrity impersonation. Crowned “Queen of all Queens” as the winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars, Michaels has spent the last two decades impersonating Cher (complete with Bob Mackie-inspired costumes) in nightclubs, at special events and on TV spots ranging from Mad TV to the Comedy Central Roast of Gene Simmons. First entering the public eye on America’s Got Talent, season eight contestant Barry is arguably the world’s best known Britney Spears impersonator and famously caught the attention of the pop princess herself from the audience on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Fresh off another epic birthday bash that united nine RPDR queens, nightlife impresario Rey Lopez brings the duo to the Aztec for a doubleheader hosted by local favorite Tencha la Jefa.
