Broadway star, female impersonator, and Tony Award-nominated playwright Charles Busch leads a seasoned group of L.A. Theatre Works regulars over the top in this sweet and sassy spoof of 1950-60s evil glamour queen movies (think Bette Davis or Joan Crawford). "Camp" is the operative word here as the fine character actor Willie Garson and Busch have a wonderful time overplaying a Hollywood power couple from hell. The wife, an over-the-hill film star, decides to end her marriage by any means necessary, including poison. But who will inherit the fortune left behind? Great 1960s suspense-film music and the sounds of an appreciative live audience laughing and gasping throughout give this happily silly piece even more pizzazz.
