Give a queen a stage, a pianist with a wealth of showtunes in his fingers, and a crowd of boozy patrons the power to request songs and you get Jinkx Sings Everything, an evening of unplanned music and stories. The solo extravaganza from Jinkx Monsoon, RuPaul's Drag Race season 5 winner, allows the comedy queen with a voice like no other guidesthe crowd through Broadway classics on demand. With nothing rehearsed, Jinkx Sings Everything is flat out fun, laughs, and a good time.
Jinkx Sings Everything is bound to make a triumphant return. It’s simple and fun. But a little structure polish could be to the evening’s benefit. While it would eliminate the scream-and-interact portion of the night, having the audience fill out a sheet preshow would allow a smoother night by maintaining the request feel. Either, Jinkx Monsoon can do anything and her fans will be loyally by her side. That’s what happens when you have talent.
