In the world of drag, it’s one thing to be able to win over an audience. It’s another thing to be able to put on a show. Even then, putting on a show is more than just singing song after song. There needs to be a rhyme and reason. It is, in a way, a theatrical art. The Laurie Beechman has played host to an assortment of RuPaul’s Drag Race alumni, offering an array of show styles. From literal concert to emotionally driven cabarets, the stage has seen it all. But sometimes, a queen sashays in and elevates the playing field with their unmatched talent and ability to craft a fully realized show. Enter Jinkx Monsoon.
Jinkx Monsoon and Major Scales may have been mourning but the audience sure wasn’t. Christmas Mourning is a practically perfect holiday treat that will leave you tickled.
