Drag (draäg) n. 1. When a man wears what a lesbian won’t
When I heard that Lady Bunny hopped away from New York City to star in the return of one of Atlanta’s longest running plays, Veranda, I assumed the playwrights added a new role to accomodate the big-wigged, potty-mouthed, foundation-caked boy-broad who prowls the stage looking for somebody to insult. Imagine my surprise when they cast her as the Southern Baptist preacher’s wife.
Yes, the She-Man who came up with one of the funniest, crudest Martha Stewart jokes* EVER, is going to play a soft-spoken spouse of an anti-gay marriage preacher. In drag.
I can’t even type that out without chuckling. Living in Atlanta, I’ve seen the play many times. It’s hilarious enough without her–I can’t even imagine what it is with her. I smell a national tour. Here’s Bunny talking about her new role:
* ”How do you make Martha Stewart scream twice? F**K her in the ass and wipe it off on her curtains.”
