Jinkx Monsoon, the Seattle drag performer who just won the TV competition “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” will bring the cabaret show “The Vaudevillians” to Seattle before launching it in an Off Broadway run in July. “The Vaudevillians,” a musical comedy piece about the zany adventures of an intrepid show-biz trouper and her accompanist (played by Major Scales), will be performed at 7:30 and 9:30 p.m. June 2 in the Cornish Playhouse at Seattle Center. Both Jerick Hoffer (Jinkx Monsoon) and Richard Andriessen (Major Scales) are graduates of Cornish College, which now manages the Playhouse; the show is in part a benefit for the college’s scholarship fund. Tickets: $10-$25; (www.brownpapertickets.com).
Hoffer has another Seattle performance before his Big Apple run: He’ll appear in the 5th Avenue Theatre concert version of “Hairspray,” with the Seattle Men’s Chorus, June 20-23. (www.5thavenue.org).
