'Die Mommie Die!' (10/31)
Sundance Film Series - (2003, 90 mins, Color)
Written by and starring Charles Busch, 'DIE MOMMIE DIE!' was produced by Dante Di Loreto, Anthony Edwards and Bill Kenwright of Aviator Films, LLC and 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.
Exclusive engagement is at the Loews Star Theatre Great Lakes
(4300 Baldwin Rd, Auburn Hills, MI) from October 31st. For more information on this wonderful film series and each film individually, simply click this link:
