About this show

Die! Mommy! Die! is a comic melodrama that evokes the 1960's movie thrillers that featured such aging cinematic icons as Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Lana Turner and Susan Hayward. Faded pop singer, Angela Arden, is trapped in a corrosive marriage to film producer, Sol Sussman. In an attempt to find happiness with her younger lover, an out of work TV star, Angela plots to murder her husband with a poisoned suppository. In a plot that reflects both Greek tragedy as well as Hollywood folklore, Angela's resentful daughter, Edith, convinces Angela's emotionally disturbed son, Lance, to avenge their father's death by killing their mother. Lance, demanding proof of Angela's crime, slips some LSD into her coffee, which brings on not only a wild acid trip but also what promises to be one of the funniest moments in L.A. theatre history!! See the fabulous Angela Arden change lovers as often as she changes her outfits! See Bible-belt maid Bootsie tell it like it is! See Lance display the side-effects of being spun around on a Lazy Susan! See daddy's little girl, Edith, show us just how far she'll go to prove her love! See Tony Parker, whose ego is as big as his *@$%!!! SEE! SEE! SEE! Performs Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights. Call for further details.
