Description

A riotous comedy thriller 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, Angela becomes the prime suspect when Sol turns up dead. In a plot that reflects Greek tragedy as well as Hollywood kitsch, Angela’s manipulative daughter  convinces her “emotionally disturbed” brother  that together they must avenge their father’s death … by killing their mother!
