BenDeLaCreme is about to embark on her biggest UK tour to date.

This July, the RuPaul’s Drag Race (and All Stars 3) contestant will bring her extravaganza, Ready to Be Committed, to Newcastle, London, Glasgow, Manchester and Hove.

Written, directed and produced by Ben, the show follows her drag character as she embraces her inner ‘bridezilla’ for her upcoming nuptials. It originally played to sold-out crowds in the US last year to universal critical acclaim.

When we spoke to Ben last summer about the show, she told us that it “goes beyond talking about just gay marriage” and said it touches upon “marriage throughout history and where it comes from as in medieval times”.

She added: “The fight for marriage equality has been a huge part of the conversation of the queer experience for a long time. Part of that conversation has always been, ‘This is a right that we all deserve.’

“Another part of that is, what does it mean to assimilate in this way? And engage in something that is a heteronormative marker that all homosexuals have been told that they need to do in order to be valued as members of society?”

A spokesman for her show said: “Sweet as pie and sharp as cheddar, the terminally delightful BenDeLaCreme is known for combining her background in performing and visual arts with a love of spectacle, glamour, and Saturday morning cartoons. She has dazzled crowds throughout the Americas, Europe, and Australia and premiered four critically acclaimed solo shows off Broadway, as well as written, directed, and produced myriad narrative works and variety spectaculars that have played to sold-out audiences for over a decade.” BenDeLaCreme’s live performances have received glowing reviews.

“Keeping you entertained while making you think about your place in the world is all a part of the BenDeLaCreme experience,” said Forbes and Billboard raves that her work “...soars past entertainment and into the realm of theatrical art.”

BenDeLaCreme has appeared on two seasons of the Emmy award-winning “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” her first go-round securing her a spot among the show’s “15 Fan Favorites of All Time.” After being crowned “Miss Congeniality” on Season 6, she returned to compete on the third season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars” on VH1 where she garnered more challenge wins than any other competitor in the show’s history, among other series records.

Continuing to break new ground by, and for, drag artists, in 2018 DeLa’s production company, BenDeLaCreme Presents, produced its first national tour with, “To Jesus, Thanks for Everything, Jinkx and DeLa!” And in 2019, the “All I Want for Christmas is Attention” tour marked DeLa’s first producer credit for an international tour.

BenDeLaCreme will be at the Old Market on Saturday, July 18 and Sunday, July 19.
