Jinkx Monsoon just made her Broadway debut as Mama Morton, the matron of the Cook County Jail in Chicago.
Jinkx told CBS ahead of the show,
I mean, this was, this is something I, kind of, have always dreamed about.
So it’s, it’s still feels very surreal. It’s one of those things where it’s like, it’s, It’s surreal. And it feels like this ultimate culmination of something I’ve been working towards for a long time in my career.
And then it also feels like so commonplace now, because I’ve been working towards, you know, it’s like, I get to the theater and, and it’s simultaneously blowing my mind.
… it feels so special to be in a show that is like taking huge steps in progressive inclusivity in their casting. And I’ve had conversations with the production team about this and how, like, exciting it is not just to be on Broadway, but to be on Broadway in this show.
The show that’s making these big swings, and, and it’s putting so much trust in me.
