Guess who’s coming for din din? Billy Clift is the director of the upcoming drag-parody film, Baby Jane, which is scheduled to premiere on Tuesday, June 22, at the Castro Theater. Baby Jane is a definite wink and nod to the original 1962 cult classic with Bette Davis and Joan Crawford starring as a pair of miserable sisters.

Maryland native Joshua Grannell is a fourteen year Bay Area resident famous in part for performing as the popular drag performer-emcee-actor Peaches Christ. Peaches’ reign over her Midnight Mass movie event series that started in 1998 came to a mascara laden end in 2009. He confessed via phone interview that his alt ego, Peaches Christ, would eat at Little Orphan Andy’s. “That is Peaches’ favorite!” Grannell said. “(I) can be in drag and eat there at 3 a.m. Peaches loves their Monte Cristo.”
