Last week Darren Stein, director of gay cult classics Jawbreaker and G.B.F. was in New York to work on the Jawbreaker musical. A musical version of the 1999 dark comedy has been in the works since 2013, so it wasn’t surprising when Stein announced he was traveling to the home of Broadway for another reading.
What was surprising was who took part in the latest workshop:
I'm currently at a table read for a new musical… Shhh! It's secret.

Jinkx Monsoon, RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 5 winner participated in a new reading of the musical as Principal Sherwood, played by Carol Kane in the original movie.
Could Jinkx be headed to the Great White Way?

A screening of Jawbreaker with Stein, Peaches Christ and Rebecca Gayheart was just announced for this year’s DragCon. Coincidence?
We think not.
