Roseanne Barr’s character in the 1989 cult classic She Devil might as well be a drag queen herself, what with the hideous-chic outfits, the frazzled hair and the mole. That mole!

So is Meryl Streep’s character for that matter, making the film a perfect choice for San Francisco drag queen Peaches Christ’s wonderfully raucous live stage adaptations.

And the comedy potential is not lost on Roseanne herself.

Peaches did the courtesy of inviting Roseanne to the July 9th show, which costars Sharon Needles and Heklina — very ladylike indeed:

Roseanne, not known for being a woman of few words, had just one in response — “awesome” :

Only time will tell if she’ll make an appearance to witness the mayhem.

If you haven’t been to one of Peaches’ shows at the iconic Castro Theater, it’s a hoot and a half.

We’ll leave you with this fine bit of acting from the film — the dinner disaster. This movie really was made for drag:
