Video: Jinkx Monsoon Takes First Broadway Bow in Chicago


Two-time RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Jinkx Monsoon made her Broadway debut in the Tony-winning revival of Chicago January 16 at the Ambassador Theatre. Monsoon has stepped into the role of Matron "Mama" Morton for an eight-week limited engagement through March 12, becoming the first drag queen to play the role on Broadway.

“I cannot stress enough that this has been a lifelong dream of mine,” said Monsoon in an earlier statement. “To be making my Broadway debut, as my favorite role, in one of my favorite shows—that lifelong dream is coming true and then some. The first number I performed in drag was 'All That Jazz,' so this feels almost too serendipitous. But I never question my blessings, I just thank Hecate for them.”
