📍 Seattle Rep: 155 Mercer St, Seattle

We demanded more Jinkx Monsoon! It wasn’t enough that she made her way through Cornish College of the Arts, lit up the stage with such theatre companies as 5th Avenue Theater and Balagan (her Hedwig was dynamite), cornered the local drag scene, won RuPaul’s Drag Race not once but twice, and toured several shows a year. No. Though she moved away from Seattle, a few years ago, we wanted more more more.

Well, we got it. After doing two stints on Broadway as Matron Mama Morton in Chicago and taking over as Audrey in the long-running off-Broadway revival of Little Shop of Horrors, Monsoon is back in town at the Seattle Rep with her longtime partner-in-crime Major Scales for another round of blowsy musical comedy. Their newest show, Together Again, Again, is a sequel to their 2014 hit The Vaudevillians, about a 1920s cabaret duo unfrozen in modern times who claim all of our modern song hits were actually their original songs a century ago… with the contemporaneous stylings to prove it.

Together Again, Again picks up that idea and runs it right into the apocalypse; it’s now 2065, aliens have taken over the world, and Monsoon and Scales are back at it with a one-time reunion special. Expect absolute nonsense, ribald humor, major guffaws, and that little twitch you feel in your brain when a Top 40 tuner is done in the vein of Cole Porter.

Tickets will go fast, so get to them ASAP.
