Photo Coverage: 'Die Mommie Die!' Opening Night
Charles Busch's acclaimed comedy Die Mommie Die! opened Off-Broadway premiere last night, October 21 at New World Stages (340 W. 50th St.). Produced by Daryl Roth and Bob Boyett, and directed by Carl Andress, Die Mommie Die! runs a limited Off-Broadway engagement through Sunday, February 17, 2008.
"A riotous comedy noir steeped in the glamour of 1960s Hollywood, Die Mommie Die! stars playwright Charles Busch as Angela Arden, a fallen pop diva trapped in a hateful marriage to film producer Sol Sussman. Desperate to find happiness with her younger lover, out-of-work TV actor Tony Parker, Angela gruesomely murders her husband with the aid of a poisoned suppository," state press materials. "In a plot that reflects Greek tragedy as well as Hollywood kitsch, Angela's manipulative daughter, Edith, convinces her 'emotionally disturbed' brother, Lance, that together they must avenge their father's death . by killing their mother!"
Performance Schedule: Tuesday - Friday at 8pm; Saturday at 7pm & 10pm; Sunday at 3pm & 7pm. Tickets are available at (212) 239-6200 or Telecharge.com†
