Come meet Charles Busch, direct from the stage of the SoHo Playhouse, where his unanimously acclaimed new play, The Divine Sister, is the comic hit of the season. Subject of the PBS-aired documentary, The Lady in Question is Charles Busch, this award-winning actor and prolific playwright--including the Tony nominated Tale of the Allergist’s Wife and Vampire Lesbians of Sodom--will talk about his multifaceted career. Mr. Busch will also tempt us with inside details about his sophisticated new hit, in which he slyly channels every Hollywood nun from Rosalind Russell’s The Trouble With Angels and Ingrid Bergman’s The Bells of St. Mary’s to The Singing Nun herself!
DIE MOMMIE DIE (2003)
An outrageous post-modern send-up of Douglas Sirk and other plush Hollywood melodramas of the 1950’s, Die Mommie Die won Charles Busch the coveted Sundance Film Festival’s Best Performance Award. Retired hit-parade singer/film star Angela Arden--surviving member of a twin-sister vaudeville act--is married to ailing producer Sol Sussman while pursuing a wild affair with handsome young tennis instructor Tony Parker (Jason Priestly). Impossibly gracious but secretly desperate, Angela plots to poison Sol, who, refusing a divorce, cuts off her allowance instead. Daughter Edith (also Tony’s lover) suspects foul play and wouldn’t mind if Mom got the Chair--but son Lance (also Tony’s lover) will doing anything to protect the mother he adores. Devotees of byzantine movie plots may think they know the outcome--but the surprise ending will knock your socks off! (USA, 2003, 90 min.)
Charles Busch will be interviewed by Dr. Jud Newborn, CAC Special Projects Curator and author, Sophie Scholl and the White Rose.
