Jinkx Monsoon & Major Scales: Unwrapped gives audiences a look at the holiday season through the jaded, sassy, somewhat boozy eyes of two bitter queens. Featuring original songs, covers and comedy from these celebrated performers, Unwrapped has a little something for everyone at the most wonderful time of the year.
“Jinkx Monsoon and Major Scales are the millennial Kiki and Herb.”—TheaterMania
Jinkx Monsoon, winner of Ru Paul’s Drag Race in 2013, is the alter ego of Jerick Hoffer, who graduated with a degree in theatrical performance from Cornish College of the Arts. With 10 years of experience on stage, Hoffer is a seasoned Portland-born entertainer who has captured the attention of his native Northwest region. As early as 2006, Hoffer appeared as the lead dancer in the world’s largest drag queen chorus line, which made the Guinness Book of World Records. By 2012, he had advanced to roles in Seattle theaters, playing Moritz in Spring Awakening (produced by Balagan Theatre) and Angel in Rent (produced by the 5th Avenue Theatre). Earlier this year, Hoffer played Hedwig in Hedwig and the Angry Inch (produced by Balagan Theatre and Seattle Theatre Group). He returns to reprise the role for a special engagement December 17 through 22 at the Moore Theatre.
Major Scales is the evil twin of Richard Andriessen. He is a writer, composer, and performer from Seattle, Wash., who graduated with a B.F.A. in Theater from Cornish College of the Arts. He has contributed original music to venues throughout Washington, from the Intiman Theatre to Hump!, Seattle’s premier amateur adult film festival. He recently composed music for and starred in Washington Ensemble Theater’s original musical The Callers, and performs regularly in DeLouRue Presents Homo For the Holidays and Freedom Fantasia.
