Annual 'Mommie Dearest' Interactive

  • Village East Cinema 181-, 189 2nd Avenue New York, NY, 10003 United States (map)

Hedda Lettuce presents the Annual Mommie Dearest Interactive, starring Faye Dunaway as the legendary Joan Crawford (1981). This special event — a mélange of Rocky Horror and Mystery Science Theater with barbed wit — will terrify and entertain audiences young and old. Hedda Lettuce weaves her way in and out of the film, interacting with it, while pianist Rachel Kaufman underscores the drama, highlighting the insanity of Faye Dunaway’s performance.

The now-legendary tale of Hollywood superstar Joan Crawford and the lengths she went to in order to maintain her public image. This domestic horror tale is so over-the-top that it is often celebrated as high camp but Dunaway's performance remains nothing short of astounding.

Reservations highly recommended.
