Life is a Drag Show (“LIADS”) goes behind-the-scenes to explore the wild world of drag superstar Peaches Chris and her alter ego writer/director Joshua Grannell. To make a living, Peaches and her chosen family of artistic misfits produce original theatrical parodies that celebrate cult movies and their stars.
Each live spectacle is a true labor of love; produced in less than a month on a minimal budget. Challenges and unexpected personal drama are ever-present—performers throw attitude, schedules change, technology fails, heels break, sets collapse, lines are flubbed, and costumes malfunction.
LIADS delivers the vibrant personalities, fierce dedication, high emotional stakes, and authenticity viewers seek.
