54 Below headliner Charles Busch hosts a special screening of the cult favorite movie, Die, Mommie, Die! Expect a Q&A and lots of laughs along the way.
Written by and starring Charles Busch, Die, Mommie, Die! also stars Frances Conroy (SIX FEET UNDER) Philip Baker Hall (MAGNOLIA), Natasha Lyonne (SLUMS OF BEVERLY HILLS), Jason Priestley (90210), and Stark Sands (SIX FEET UNDER). The film premiered in Dramatic Competition at 2003 Sundance Film Festival where Charles Busch was awarded a special performance Jury Prize.
Created as an ode to the Ross Hunter-style big-screen soaps of the 60’s, Die, Mommie, Die! features theater veteran Busch as the fallen pop diva, Angela Arden. When Angela’s husband, Sol (Hall), discovers that she’s having an affair with tennis pro, gigolo and failed actor Tony Parker (Priestley), Angela calculatedly offs him with a poisoned suppository, or does she? What follows is a hilarious mixture of whodunits and double-crossings involving Bootsie (Conroy), the ill-fated family maid, Edith (Lyonne), Angela and Sol’s spoiled, vampy daughter and Lance (Sands), their boy-toy son.
