Die Mommie Die!

Oct. 3 - Nov. 2, 2014

Part Greek tragedy, part Hollywood kitsch - this is Charles Busch at his best! The time is the 1960’s and ex-pop singer Angela Arden is trapped in a corrosive marriage with her film producer husband. In her attempt to find happiness with her young lover, Angela murders her husband, leaving their children to avenge his death.  The “very nearly illegally entertaining” (LA Times) production stars J. Conrad Frank, creator of San Francisco's popular drag cabaret sensation Katya Smirnoff-Skyy, at the title Mommie character.

"A scream delight! ... Bette Davis couldn't have done it better!"

Bay Area Reporter
"Charles Busch wrote the play as a vehicle for himself, and his canny performance can be seen in the movie version, but with no aspersions to Busch, Frank quickly makes us forget that anyone else has ever played the role."

Examiner

"Brilliant! ... J. Conrad Frank has done the near impossible!"
