Moscow Community Theater presents: Die, Mommie, Die! by Charles Busch
A comic melodrama that evokes the 1960’s "grande guignol" films that featured aging stars such as Bette Davis, Joan Crawford and Lana Turner. Ex-pop singer, Angela Andrews, is trapped in a hateful marriage with film producer Sol Sussman. Desperate to find happiness with her younger lover, an out of work TV actor, Tony Parker, Angela murders her husband with the aid of a poisoned suppository. In a plot that reflects Greek tragedy as well as Hollywood kitsch, Angela’s Elektra-like daughter, Edith, convinces Angela’s emotionally disturbed son, Lance, that they must avenge their father’s death by killing their mother. A surprising twist ending has all of the Sussman family’s dirty laundry aired out for once and for all.
Die, Mommy, Die! was first produced in July, 1999 by Kenneth Elliott and Don Fairbanks at the Coast Playhouse, Los Angeles. It opened Off-Broadway in October, 2007, at New World Stages in New York City, where it was directed by Carl Andress.
