Ari, Hansis, Nielsen, et al. to Join Busch in Die Mommie Die!
Busch will play Angela Arden, a fallen pop diva who decides to murder her husband, film producer Sol Sussman (Ari), with the help of her younger lover, actor Tony Parker (Hoch). After Sol's death, Angela's manipulative daughter, Edith (Morris), convinces her "emotionally disturbed" brother Lance (Hansis) that they must avenge their father's death by killing their mother. Nielsen will play the Sussman's live-in domestic, Bootsie Carp.
Ari's Broadway credits include The Man Who Came to Dinner and Bells Are Ringing. Hansis currently plays gay teen Luke Snyder on the CBS daytime drama As The World Turns. Hoch was most recently seen on Broadway in Spamalot. Morris is making her Off-Broadway debut. Neilsen, an Obie-winning actress, starred earlier this year in Busch's Our Leading Lady at Manhattan Theatre Club.
