We know what you’re thinking because we’ve been thinking about it, too: just when are they going to come up with a drag parody of the Mildred Pierce? Come on! Thankfully, Ryan Landry and the Gold Dust Orphans have heard your prayers, and the musical satire is finally playing at Machine Nightclub, following ballsy Mildred baking up a storm in an attempt to earn the love of her detestable daughter. The story stays the same—except for the addition of toe-tapping showtunes and tap dancing pies. We’ve always said that we prefer our pastries dancing, no?
