The Garden Of Unearthly Delights – Paradiso Speigeltent

Jinkx Monsoon, reigning queen of RuPaul’s Drag Race makes her Australian debut with co-star Major Scales, at the Garden of Unearthly Delights as part of a three-month Australian festival tour.

Introducing THE VAUDEVILLIANS – The hottest act ever frozen alive has returned from the 1920’s, reclaiming their original hits ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’, ‘Drop it like it’s Hot’ and more! Jinkx Monsoon, season five winner of Logo Tv’s RuPaul’s Drag Race, will bring her sell-out, five-time extended, off-Broadway hit The Vaudevillians to major Australian festivals in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Brisbane, and Hobart in 2014.

The drag-comedy sensation and alter ego of Jerick Hoffer, will reprise her role as Kitty Witless, alongside co-star and co-writer Richard Andriessen, better known as Dr. Dan von Dandy. The New York Times writes, “straight or gay, everyone leaves this show with sides aching from laughter” and “a pure delight”. The Vaudevillians has amazed audiences since its inception, even RuPaul proclaimed the performance “a triumph!”

Time-travellers from a century ago, the show’s starring duo are 1920s performers who toured speakeasies and burlesque theatres. They have emerged from a deep freeze in Antarctica to present their act just as they did before they were caught in an avalanche and frozen alive. Now, Witless and the good doctor are on a quest to reclaim their music—songs like “Girls Just Want to Have Fun,” about the suffragettes, and “Drop It Like It’s Hot,” about the invention of the electric iron.

Presented by award winning Strut & Fret Production House, the Melbourne based company behind international touring artists and productions, Le Gateau Chocolat, LIMBO, Cantina, Tom Thum, The Tom Tom Crew and Strange Fruit.
