HEDDA LETTUCE PRESENTS: AUNTIE MAME
New York City’s Premiere Drag Queen Hedda Lettuce presents AUNTIE MAME, an interactive event the likes of Rocky Horror meets Mystery Science Theater with barbed wit. With comedy, and commentary, Hedda highlights the highs, lows, and absurdities of the 1958 film.
About the film:
Mame Dennis (Rosalind Russell), a progressive and independent woman of the 1920s, is left to care for her nephew Patrick (Jan Handzlik/Roger Smith) after his wealthy father dies. Mr. Babcock (Fred Clark), Patrick's assigned executor, objects to Mame's unconventional way of living and tries to force her to send Patrick to prep school. As Mame and Patrick grow closer, Mr. Babcock tries to discipline Patrick and threatens to separate the two if Mame does not comply with his wishes.
