"Mommie Queerest" - POSTPONED TO NOV. 16
|Nov 02, 2012|
|8:00 PM - 10:00 PM|
In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the cult classic movie "Mommie Dearest," Camden Harbour Inn proudly presents Jamie Morris’ twisted comedy MOMMIE QUEEREST!
This OUTRAGOUSLY funny comedy will play at Camden Opera House one night only on November 2nd at 8pm
In the summer of 2003 MOMMIE QUEEREST premiered in Provincetown to sold-out Rocky Horror-type crowds and has since played every major city in America. Featuring an all-male cast, this LA Weekly Theater Award-winning play tells the now-famous story of Hollywood's baddest Mama and her rocky relationship with adopted daughter Christina, with a twist: What if Joan Crawford had really been a man?
The play reunites playwright Jamie Morris (Joan) with Brooks Braselman as Christina. Christopher Kenney - also known to Camden audiences as drag sensation EDIE - will direct. Kenney’s character EDIE is currently featured as The Mistress of Sensuality, the host and emcee of one of the most popular shows in Las Vegas, Cirque du Soleil’s “Zumanity.”
Morris is best known for his stage parodies which have toured the country since 2003. His other works include “The Facts of Life: The Lost Episode” and “The Silence of the Clams,” both of which world premiered in Provincetown. He lives in Las Vegas and plays Father Mark in the long-running interactive comedy “Tony ‘n Tina’s Wedding” at Bally’s Hotel & Casino.
" I saw this comedy when I was in Los Angles and immediately decided that we had to bring it to Maine" says Raymond Brunyanszki co-owner of Camden Harbour Inn. "It is hysterically funny and very clever comedy. A great way to start our winter season!" Brunyanszki continues
