Show Information

After selling out an often-extended Off-Broadway run, an Australian tour and a run at London’s Soho Theatre, RuPaul's Drag Race winner Jinkx Monsoon is going on a 20-date tour from 3rd November with The Vaudevillians, a bawdy, rowdy musical comedy co-starring composer and musician Major Scales. The tour comes as part of Soho Theatre’s commitment to take the best work from London’s most vibrant venue for new theatre, comedy and cabaret to the rest of the UK.

Throughout the 1920's Kitty Witless and Dr. Dan Von Dandy toured the United States as The Vaudevillians, wowing audiences with their edgy, original music. One day, while touring through Antarctica, they were victims of a devastating avalanche and were buried under two tons of sleet and snow - instantly freezing them alive. But thanks to Global Warming, they recently thawed out only to discover that pop artists had stolen their music and passed it off as their own. Now, at long last, they are taking to the stage to reclaim their songs, performing their music as originally composed. It’s a vintage cabaret with a twist of drag.

Favourite of worldwide hit TV phenomenon RuPaul’s Drag Race Jinkx Monsoon is the sassy alter ego of Portland born entertainer Jerick Hoffer. Having toured worldwide Jinkx has performed two sell out, extended runs at London’s Soho Theatre with off Broadway US spectacle The Vaudevillians, co-starring Major Scales and returning last Christmas with follow up seasonal sell-out Unwrapped! Earlier in 2017 she performed as part of The Drag Ball at London’s Eventium Apollo Theatre and co-starred with Peaches Christ in the much-buzzed-about Return to Grey Gardens in NYC and London.

Major Scales is the evil twin of Richard Andriessen, a musician, writer and performer based in Seattle. He has written everything from award-winning New York shows on the east coast to music for amateur adult films on the west.
