Intimate concert venue The Green Room 42, dubbed Broadway’s “off-night hotspot” by The New York Times, will present a special evening with living legend and cult film icon Mink Stole and San Francisco drag impresario and filmmaker Peaches Christ.
The ladies appear for two performances on Friday, February 16 and Saturday, February 17, both at 7:00 PM. Mink (Pink Flamingos, Hairspray, But I’m A Cheerleader) and Peaches (All About Evil, Hulu’s Drag Me To Dinner) have been close friends for over two decades and they would like you to join them for an evening of storytelling, film clips and live song in a wildly entertaining and uncensored exposé that is as hilarious as it is revealing. The New York shows are part of a national tour that brings the duo to Salem, MA; Providence, RI; Philadelphia, PA; and Washington, D.C. If you’re a fan of John Waters’ films, Divine, drag history, or cult movies, this is an intimate, revelatory, and heartfelt event you don’t want to miss.
Mink Stole is best known for her work with filmmaker John Waters, with whom she has created the iconic characters of Connie Marble in Pink Flamingos, Taffy Davenport in Female Trouble, and Dottie Hinkle in Serial Mom, to name a few. Other film roles include Nancy, the mother of a lesbian, in But I’m A Cheerleader, and Evelyn the librarian in All About Evil, written and directed by Joshua Grannell, aka Peaches Christ. Mink was Peaches’ first live celebrity guest at the legendary Midnight Mass and they have performed together many times since, notably in Return to Grey Gardens, and their two-woman show, Idol Worship. With her Wonderful Band, Mink has released a CD, Do Re MiNK.
Peaches Christ is a filmmaker, event producer and cult leader living in San Francisco. She produces and hosts events in partnership with PolyArts Management for symphony orchestras and her holiday show annually plays London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall. Peaches is a filmmaker, the alter- ego of Joshua Grannell, writer and director of the feature film All About Evil. Joshua is the co-owner of the Into the Dark production company which produces immersive theater, including the popular Terror Vault show at the historic San Francisco Mint building.
