Tickets are now on sale for a new production of Surviving Mommie Dearest. With an official opening set for May 8, the off-Broadway drama will run a limited engagement through May 12 at the Snapple Theater Center/Jerry Orbach Theater.
Surviving Mommie Dearest chronicles the turbulent relationship between Christina Crawford (author of the 1978 autobiographical book Mommie Dearest) and her movie legend mother, Joan Crawford. This production utilizes film clips and footage from Crawford home movies, as well as clips from Crawford’s documentary covering 100 years of showbiz history.
Surviving Mommie Dearest was written by Christina Crawford who is pulling double-duty as the production’s singular star.
