'Tis the season... Monsoon season that is!

Jinkx Monsoon and Major Scales are back at New York's Laurie Beechman Theatre to bring yuletide cheer to the masses in "Jinkx Unwrapped."

The duo who previously starred in their spectacular cabaret show "The Vaudevillians" have traded ABBA and Madonna covers for new holiday classics like "Christmas Scat" from "The Muppet Christmas Carol" and "What About Debbie," an original song featuring Joan Cusack's character from "The Addams Family Values."

The same banter between Jinkx and Major Scales that made "The Vaudevillians" such a delight is still (Christmas) present, and along with a full set list the show, which clocks in at just over an hour, flies by like Santa Claus in his sleigh.

A Jewish drag queen may seem like an odd choice to host a Christmas show, but anyone who saw Jinkx on "RuPaul's Drag Race" or in "The Vaudevillians" this past summer knows that his performances are top-notch, especially with Major Scales accompanying him on piano, and this holiday celebration is no different.

This new holiday classic is not-to-be-missed. Tickets for the final night of "Jinkx Unwrapped," tonight, Dec. 10 are still available here.
