If fans of "RuPaul's Drag Race" star Jinkx Monsoon didn't get an opportunity to see her during her last Broadway run as Matron "Mama" Morton in "Chicago," they are in luck. Jinkx is reportedly returning for another run as Morton from June 27 to July 12.

As reported by New York Theatre Guide, Jinkx made her debut in the role January 2023, the first drag queen to take on the role and earning widespread acclaim for there performance.

"Most of my life, and my entire artistic career – I have known the roles I would play well, but I also knew the industry was not yet giving actors like me the chance to prove it," said Jinkx in a statement about her return to the role. "Over the last decade, I, and queer artists like myself have been chipping away at the antiquated ideas of gender and performance – leading to my life changing run as Mama Morton in Chicago."

In that first 10-week run, Jinkx said she learned so much about her craft "and myself."

"I cannot wait to take all of that back into this role and show," she said. "I am still just a kid, in shock and awe of this wonderful world I get to be a part of."

In addition to "Chicago," Jinkx has performed in musicals including "Hairspray," "Rent," "Hedwig and the Angry Inch," and "Spring Awakening."
