Tonight, and for one night only, underground drag performer Peaches Christ takes on the Maysles Brothers' 1975 cult classic Grey Gardens. Billed as "an original, drag-driven musical stage-show" written, starring, and directed by Peaches Christ, Return to Grey Gardens finds the Beales sisters forty years into the future, performing at the now dilapidated Wilshire Ebell - in drag. On tonight's bill: Season Five winner of RuPaul's Drag Race, Jinkx Monsoon; the legendary Peaches Christ, and L.A. drag monster Squeaky Blonde. Stick around after the standing ovation: Immediately following the show, audience members may submit themselves onstage for a review of their "best outfits" in the Either Edie Costume Contest, judged by Monsoon and hosted by Peaches Christ. Don't miss it.
