Fresh off of her win of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 7, Jinkx Monsoon is gearing up for her Broadway debut!

Moonson is set to join New York City's Ambassador Theatre's production of Chicago as Matron Mama Morton, the role Queen Latifah got an Oscar nomination for in 2002 in the movie-musical of the same name. According to EW, Monsoon will be the first drag artist to portray Mama Morton in the Broadway production.

Raise your hand if you cannot wait to hear Monsoon sing, "When You're Good to Mama"! *raises hand*

Chicago is the longest-running musical revival in Broadway history and Monsoon is thrilled to join the show.

"I cannot stress enough that this has been a lifelong dream of mine," the nonbinary artist explained. "To be making my Broadway debut, as my favorite role, in one of my favorite shows — that lifelong dream is coming true and then some. The first number I performed in drag was 'All That Jazz,' so this feels almost too serendipitous. But, I never question my blessings, I just thank Hecate for them."

Monsoon celebrated the news on social media, even sharing a meme of her mimicking Kamala Harris celebrating the VP win with "we did it Joe" and tagging the Chicago production.



We can't wait to see what Monsoon does with the role! If you want to catch Drag Race royalty in next year's production of Chicago, Monsoon's run begins January 16, 2023 and will run for eight weeks.

In the meantime, we'll just have to rewatch her All Stars 7 snatch game...
