About This Show

Oscar-winner. Clean-freak. Obsessed with wire hangers. Think you know her whole story? Well, here it is again… with a twist.

After sold-out, SRO crowds around the country, the new comedy Mommie Queerest, comes to Cabaret ULTRA SUEDE. Presented by Tom Whitman and Joe Everett Michaels, the play is conceived and adapted by Jamie Morris. Featuring an all-male cast of four, the show tells the now-famous story of movie star Joan Crawford and her tumultuous relationship with adopted daughter Christina. But what if all those years Joan was really a man? And not just any man in drag, but the true Queen of Hollywood. For years she fooled the studio, her fans, her kids, and the world. That is until Christina finds out, plots her revenge, and publishes a scathing tell-all entitled “Daddy Dearest.” Even then, it’s Joan who has the last laugh.
