Monsoon (Jerick Hoffer) stars as Kitty Witless with Scales (Richard Andriessen) as Doctor Dan Von Dandy. Performances will continue through Nov. 2.

"Following a sold-out Off-Broadway run and an international tour to Australia, Seattle natives Jerick Hoffer (Jinkx Monsoon, 'RuPaul's Drag Race') and Richard Andriessen (Major Scales) bring this bawdy, rowdy musical revue home," according to Seattle Rep. "The impossible premise? The Vaudevillians, a fictional 1920s duo, were literally frozen in time while touring in Antarctica. Thawing out nearly a century later, they discover their original music has been co-opted throughout the years—and they're not going to stand for it. Wigs will fly as the two perform hits from the likes of Janis Joplin and Gloria Gaynor in the style of Cole Porter and Irving Berlin. It’s a vintage cabaret with a twist of drag."

The creative team includes scenic designer L.B. Morse, lighting designer Robert Aguilar and sound designer Matt Starritt. 

As previously announced, the 2014–15 season will include the first presentation of Seattle writer Robert Schenkkan's two-part Lyndon B. Johnson plays, All The Way and the world premiere of The Great Society, in repertory format.

The new season will also include three world premieres, a new production of August Wilson's The Piano Lesson and a redefined design concept for the Leo K. Theatre season.

The season will runs through May 2015, and subscriptions are available by calling (206) 443-2222 or visiting SeattleRep.org.
