Tiger King gets official Netflix musical with RuPaul’s Drag Race icons starring as Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin

Netflix is celebrating Tiger King in style on their one-year anniversary – with a Drag Race queen musical spectacular.

Tiger Queens: The Tiger King Musical is launching for a one-off next week, starring RuPaul’s Drag Race stars Willam, Heidi N Closet and Kim Chi.

Airing on TikTok, home of off-brand musicals like the Bridgerton special, Willam will star as Joe Exotic, Kim Chi will take on Carole Baskin, and Heidi N Closet will play… the Tiger.

We’ve been promised special guests will drop in as well.

It already sounds whacky and fabulous so we’re completely on board.

Tiger Queens will air on Sunday March 28 as part of Netflix’s anniversary celebrations into the documentary series that got us through the first lockdown.

Following a long-held feud between Joe Exotic, a roadside zoo owner, and animal rights activist Carole Baskin, Tiger King eventually saw Joe’s erratic behaviour and life spiral out of control.

He is currently in prison for the murder-for-hire plot of Carole, as well as several animal cruelty charges.

After trying and failing to get a presidential pardon from Donald Trump, Joe is currently fighting his conviction, claiming he is being denied medical treatment in jail.

He’s also launched a shoe line and plans to release his autobiography.

Meanwhile, Carole has made no secret of her hatred towards the documentary series, claiming she agreed to take part under the pretence the team planned to expose the big cat trading industry.

Instead, she became a central character, with an entire episode focused on Joe’s accusations she murdered her husband, Don Lewis, and ‘fed him to tigers’ – resulting in her becoming victim to a ‘mob mentality’ as she was accused by fans.

Carole has adamantly denied any involvement with Don’s disappearance, branding the series a ‘freak show’ and refusing to take part in the second season.

She now intends to work on her own series, which is in line with what she thought the initial project was.

Tiger King is available now on Netflix, Tiger Queens will air March 28 on TikTok.
