Delta as Adele by Magnus Hastings
Delta as Adele. (Magnus Hastings)

Delta Work, a fan favorite on RuPaul’s reality TV competition “Drag Race,” may win the prize for most eclectic musical taste, with routines that span decades and genres. You can catch her in the Dreamgirls Revue at Micky’s, where she catches audiences off-guard with daring new performances.

One of those rare queens who isn’t afraid to whip out a song written before anyone in the audience was born, Work always makes it fresh.
