Jinkx Monsoon announces return to 'Chicago' as Matron "Mama" Morton

Surprise! It’s Monsoon season yet again. Jinkx Monsoon just announced a brand new Chicago run, where she’ll reprise her role as Matron “Mama” Morton. The performances will take place from June 27 to July 12, 2024.

“Most of my life, and my entire artistic career — I have known the roles I would play well, but I also knew the industry was not yet giving actors like me the chance to prove it,” Jinkx wrote in a statement. 

“Over the last decade, I, and queer artists like myself, have been chipping away at the antiquated ideas of gender and performance — leading to my life-changing run as Mama Morton in Chicago.”

She added, “During that one 10-week run, I learned so much about my craft and myself — and I cannot wait to take all of that back into this role and show. I am still just a kid, in shock and awe of this wonderful world I get to be a part of.”

Additionally, the RuPaul’s Drag Race legend shared the news in an Instagram post, writing: “She’s baaack! I’m beyond thrilled to reunite with my [Chicago musical] family for 20 performances only, kicking off NYC Pride! Be good to Mama and swing by this summer June 27 - July 12!”



Since competing in the iconic drag competition series, Jinkx also landed roles in other Broadway shows including "Hairspray," "Rent," "Hedwig and the Angry Inch," and "Spring Awakening."

We can’t wait to see what Monsoon does next!`
