An official synopsis reads: "Jinkx Monsoon is a hard-working single mother with ambition. Since winning Season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race, she has toured the world performing her original cabaret shows with her music partner, Major Scales - the evil twin of Richard Andriessen, a musician, writer and performer based in Seattle."

It continues: "With Jinkx becoming a faded TV movie starlet, Major fading into musical obscurity, and after decades of clinging onto what scraps of fame they still have - this highly anticipated reunion will see the pair coming together for one final reunion upon the stage."

In a review of Jinkx Monsoon and Major Scales' last UK stage outing, 2019's The Ginger Snapped, Attitude's Stephen M Horby declared that Monsoon is a "drag queen at the artistic genius end of the spectrum of sassiness."

"The category is multi-talented drag queen supremeness, and Jinkx Monsoon wins," he added."

Jinkx Monsoon & Major Scales: Together Again, Again! is at The Leicester Square Theatre, London from Thursday 7 - Saturday 23 April before touring the UK. Full tour venues and dates can be found here.
