Back to top Synopsis

In this hilarious comic melodrama, songstress Angela Arden (Charles Busch), beloved by millions as "America's Nightingale," appears to have it all. Although her music is no longer the fashion in 1967, the glamorous redhead still stirs excitement among those old enough to remember.

Now semi-retired, Angela and her husband, veteran producer Sol P. Sussman (Boogie Nights' Philip Baker Hall) reside in an elegant Los Angeles mansion, where they have raised two lovely children, Edith (But I'm a Cheerleader's Natasha Lyonne) and gay boy-toy Lance (Stark Sands).

Although Angela maintains friendships with the highest of Tinseltown royalty, all is not well in the house of Sussman. Edith Sussman, spoiled and petulant, only has eyes for her father and makes no secret of her contempt for Angela.

Lance, beautiful but somewhat dim, shows more promise as a sexual plaything than as a college student. The family's maid, Bootsie Carp (Six Feet Under's Frances Conroy) is a devoted servant, but a wretched cook.

And Angela herself is deep into an affair with Tony Parker (90210's Jason Priestley), a handsome former television star now eking out a living as a tennis pro - and, if the rumors are true, a gigolo.

When Sol discovers his wife's infidelity, he is determined to not only punish Angela for the affair but to hold her prisoner in their loveless marriage. But Angela Arden is not a woman to be held prisoner, even if it means murder.

Take "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane" and cross it with "Mildred Pierce". Mix in a little "Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte" and then top it all off with "Mommie Dearest". And that’s "Die Mommie Die"!

A side-splitting, laugh-out-loud, queer take on your favorite Joan, Lana and Bette movies, written by and starring the legendary Tony nominated theater veteran Charles Busch.
