Writer, actor, comedian, and premier Chloë Sevigny impressionist Drew Droege currently stars as the faded movie actress Angela Arden in a production of Charles Busch’s ode to melodrama and noir, Die, Mommie, Die!, at the Kirk Douglas Theater in Culver City, Calif.
Droege’s storied career includes improv with the Groundlings in Los Angeles, dozens of queer-themed projects like Eating Out: Drama Camp and Sassy Pants, and appearances on acclaimed shows, including Key and Peele, New Girl, Happy Endings, Bob’s Burgers, and How I Met Your Mother.
A playwright who penned and starred in Bright Colors, Bold Patterns, which investigates how to hang on to queer culture as LGBT people integrate into mainstream society, Droege joins The Advocate’s Tracy E. Gilchrist to discuss his starring role in the irreverent play by gay icon Busch (Psycho Beach Party, The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife, Vampire Lesbians of Sodom) that flies in the face of political correctness.
Die, Mommie, Die! runs through May 20. Get tickets here.
