Shea Couleé

When: Wed., Sept. 27, 10:30 p.m. & 12 a.m. 2017

Upon entering the workroom on season nine of RuPaul’s Drag Race, Shea Couleé fiercely declared, “I didn’t come to play, I came to slay!” Flaunting an uncanny resemblance to fashion/music icon Grace Jones, the Chicago native quickly emerged as one of the top queens to beat, even giving eventual winner Sasha Velour a run for her money. Serving up Windy City realness on the season premiere, Couleé donned a hotdog-inspired costume that won high marks from guest judge Lady Gaga (and even supermodel Naomi Campbell tweeted her approval). Although ultimately falling short of the top spot, Couleé won four out of 11 challenges, a rare feat that only former contestants Alaska and Sharon Needles have accomplished. On Wednesday, Rey Lopez Entertainment brings Couleé to the Alamo City for two performances at Heat with support from hostess Tencha la Jefa and RLE Showgirls The Juniors, Sharkeisha Banks, Chyna Cravens, Alayna Marquez, Amerie Parker, and Nilaya Milan Mathews.

Price: $10-$25
