RuPaul’s Drag Race Winner Jinkx Monsoon Extends Run in Broadway’s Chicago
Two-time RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Jinkx Monsoon, who made her Broadway debut in the Tony-winning revival of Chicago January 16 in the role of Matron “Mama” Morton, has extended her engagement at the Ambassador Theatre.
Monsoon, originally scheduled for an eight-week engagement through March 12, will now continue an extra 14 performances through March 26.
Monsoon says, “The kids are saying ‘she ate,’ so I figured, I might as well have seconds. In all seriousness, playing for standing-room-only crowds throughout my run as Mama has got my mind blown and my heart full. Audiences from all over the world have generously brought so much joy to this show. The Chicago cast has become my family, and I’ve made friends for life.
