Hilarious drag stage show to benefit Equality Florida

WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BIANCA DEL RIO?
SIFF EGYPTIAN THEATRE
June 23


Peaches Christ and Bianca Del Rio will star in two performances of their hilarious stage show Thursday, June 23, during Seattle's Pride Week. Fifty percent of the profits from the 9 p.m. show will be donated to Equality Florida.

Few films of the pre-Stonewall era continue to influence contemporary drag culture with quite the persistent endurance of What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, Robert Aldrich's 1962 masterpiece of psychological horror and female rivalry. Its performances are over-the-top, its dialogue is iconic ('But'cha are, Blanche! Ya are in that chair!'), and its place in the drag canon is secure thanks to the on- and off-screen bitchery between stars/sworn enemies Bette Davis and Joan Crawford.

Peaches Christ, a longtime expert on the intersection of horror and bitchery, has wanted to pay tribute to Baby Jane ever since she first began her Midnight Mass movie series in San Francisco nearly 20 years ago. But it wasn't until she met RuPaul's Drag Race Season 6 champion and superstar comedian Bianca Del Rio that she knew she'd found her perfect Baby Jane.

'It's one of my favorite movies ever,' Del Rio says. 'There's no modern equivalent of two actresses who hate each other as much as these two did. Everybody is too P.C. now, trying to be happy and pleasant and not offend anyone. Back then it was really good and dirty. Bette and Joan were brilliant women with amazing careers and balls.'

Del Rio will star with Peaches Christ in the Seattle premiere of Christ's hilarious stage production, What Ever Happened to Bianca Del Rio? Audiences will find out what happens when two aging drag sisters live out their twilight years together in a hag-arrific house of horrors. Baby Bianca is a former child star who wants to revive the show she made popular as a little girl, when her hit song 'I've Written a Letter to Draggy' dominated the vaudeville circuit - but her drag sister Peaches proves to be a burden on wheels.

'Peaches said, 'I'm going to sit in a wheelchair and let you do all the work pushing me around,' Del Rio recounts. 'I said, 'I see a theme here. You do Grey Gardens with Jinkx Monsoon and just sit in a bed, and now I'm pushing you around the stage, you lazy bitch!'

Don't miss this psycho-biddy stage-show celebration of insanity. The star-studded local cast includes Sylvia O'Stayformore, Abbey Roads, Adé A Cônnére, Mama Tits, Hellen Tragedy, James Majesty, Isabella Extynn, and Klaudya Markos. Audience members are encouraged to don their best child-star couture, and be sure to have a few drinks at the SIFF Egyptian bar before the show!

Seattle's production is brought to you by 5 Senses Reeling Events and Qurb Media Group in partnership with Peaches Christ Productions, Seattle International Film Festival, and Seattle PrideFest. Advance tickets for both the 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. performances are on sale now at www.StrangerTickets.com while supplies last or until noon on June 23. A VIP package is available that includes a meet-and-greet. There will also be a fundraising raffle during the 9 p.m. showing.
