“I’m absolutely ecstatic to announce that the Carnegie Hall 2024/25 season has just been unveiled, and I’ll be making my Carnegie Hall debut with a special one-night only concert show! I truly don’t know what to say— my whole life, I’ve listened to my idols’ voices as they sung on the stage of Carnegie Hall… and now I get to join them in the pantheon? All I know is, I’m thrilled and humbled and READY! ” she wrote on Instagram.
This isn’t Monsoon’s first time gracing a legendary NYC theater institution’s stage. She made her Broadway debut in 2023 in Chicago when she played Matron “Mama” Morton for a 10-week run. Her performance was met with overwhelmingly positive reviews.
She made an appearance on the season 15 finale of Rupaul’s Drag Race to perform her character’s most famous song “When You’re Good To Mama.” Ru showed footage of a young Monsoon telling Drag Race producers that her dream is to one day to be on Broadway. An emotional Monsoon acknowledged a dream come true.
