slated for a limited run of 5 performances, during the week of Mother’s

Ms. Crawford who wrote and narrates the documentary, recounts the abuse
that she endured in her life, discusses her road to recovery, takes
questions from the audience and closes the 90 minute show with a book
signing.

Editions of “Mommie Dearest”, with updates and some revisions. The film

production or final approval. She has not received any royalty payments
in the 30 years since the film was released.

production “Surviving Mommie Dearest” which she wrote, co-directed and
in which she currently stars.
