Jinkx Monsoon will be on Good Morning America
Our Jinkx Monsoon has truly made a splash since she debuted in Chicago on Broadway. While we always knew she was a star, it seems the world is finally catching up with us drag fans. She will be a guest on Good Morning America this Saturday. Be sure to tune in!
Oh, and one more Jinkx story
Jinkx Monsoon has brought an increase in ticket sales since she joined the cast of Chicago. Playbill reported that the drag icon is bringing in such big crowds, there are standing-room-only spots selling out!
They reported, “Two-time RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Jinkx Monsoon is bringing in crowds (she calls them ‘drag happy’ crowds) at Broadway’s Chicago, which played to standing room only last week. Monsoon joined the company as Matron ‘Mama’ Morton last month, and the show’s box office has seen a notable uptick with her onstage. The long-running Kander and Ebb revival filled 100.51% of seats at the Ambassador, making it the week’s top performer in terms of capacity percentage. Combined with a respectable $797,240.18 at the box office, it looks like when you’re good to Jinkx, Jinkx is good to Broadway.”
She’s truly a star!
