The hottest act ever frozen alive has returned from the 1920’s to reclaim their original hits! RuPaul’s Drag Race reigning queen – Jinkx Monsoon makes her Australian debut in The Vaudevillians with co-star Major Scales.
Throughout the 1920’s Kitty Witless and Dr.Dan Von Dandy toured speakeasies and burlesque theatres, wowing audiences with their edgy, original music. Unfortunately, one day, tragedy struck!
While touring through Antarctica, they were victims of a devastating avalanche and were buried under two tons of sleet and snow – instantly freezing them alive. But thanks to global warming, they recently thawed out only to discover, that pop artists of various decades had stolen their music and passed it off as their own.
Much to their shock and chagrin, songs including Girls Just Want to Have Fun – which was originally about the woman’s Suffragette movement), and Drop it Like it’s Hot – which was originally about the invention of the electric iron) had become hits for lesser artists.
Now, at long last, they are taking to the stage to reclaim their original music, performing it as originally composed.
