The latest drag parody extravaganza at the Castro Theatre from local workhorse Peaches Christ is a mash-up of 90s film classics First Wives Club and Fight Club. And it's a musical.
It's actually a first-ever movie mashup for Peaches, and she co-wrote it with friend Varla Jean Merman, who is also co-directing.
First Wives Fight Club stars Rupaul's Drag Race Season 7 runner-up Ginger Minj (also featured in the Netflix film Dumplin'), RPDG Season 3 winner Raja, and current Drag Race contestant Brooke Lynn Hytes.
But who's playing the Helena Bonham Carter role?!?
As Peaches tells us, the two films meld well because they're both "about getting in touch with your inner aggression," with one a campy revenge comedy about middle-aged women, and the other, "David Fincher’s visionary (but no less campy) portrait of anti-establishment nihilism."
The show is playing just one day only, Sunday, April 7, for two performances (4 p.m. and 8 p.m.), and you can find tickets here.
Also, according to a release, "Audience members are encouraged to wear their biggest shoulder pads, for both fashion and fighting purposes. [And you can] drink like you just found out your cool best friend is imaginary at the Bitch Tits cocktail bar in the lobby."
