Jinkx Monsoon & Major Scales: Together Again, Again! ★★★ Leicester Square Theatre | April 7 - 23, 2022


It's 2065 and they're back! No, not the reptilian aliens that have taken over the world! In this peak into the future, Jinkx Monsoon and Major Scales are on tour again. The premise is great and there are a lot of laughs in this evening of fun. Running gags about the contestants from RuPaul's Drag Race, Harry Potter, and British slang punctuate a joyful cabaret show in which the two "stars" poke fun at their own celebrity status and the process of aging. Jinkx also shows her great talent for ad libs as she interacts with audience members. Be on your best behaviour if you don't want to be the butt of one of her zingers! And, of course, the night has some terrific musical moments. Jinkx's performance – and coiffure – definitely recall the great belters such as Sophie Tucker and Ethel Merman. There are hilarious song parodies and for us, the highlight of the evening was Jinkx's rendition of "What Would You Do?" from Cabaret. If we have any quibble with the evening, it was that, like the rest of the audience, we probably wanted more. For that, we may have to wait for the 2075 reunion. Would that be next year?
