Jinkx Monsoon, Major Scales charm New York

From Seattle Times theater critic Misha Berson:

In case you hadn’t heard, Jinkx Monsoon (aka Seattle native and Cornish College grad Jerick Hoffer) has scored a hit at New York City’s Laurie Beechman Theatre with the drag variety show “The Vaudevillians,” which also features Cornish alum Richard Andriessen as Jinkx’s accompanist, Major Scales. A New York Times reviewer enthused, “Monsoon and Scales’ humor is light and sparkling, with a PG-13 naughtiness level. It’s still a pure delight. In the duo’s well-versed affection for the past century of entertainment, they remind us that the best drag acts trace their DNA all the way back to, well, vaudeville.”

To read the whole notice (which oddly never mentions Hoffer or Andriessen by name, only by their stage alter-egos), go here:  http://tmagazine.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/07/17/after-hours-jinkx-monsoons-joyfully-cracked-ode-to-vaudeville/
