A cast of has been actors plan to revive their careers in Drop Dead!, a potboiler murder mystery directed by “Wonder Child of the Broadway Stage” Victor Le Pewe (a psychotic eye twitching megalomaniac). At the dress rehearsal the set falls, props break, and the producer and an actor are murdered. During the opening night performance, the murders continue. The remaining thespians must save the show and their careers, solve the mystery and stay alive for curtain calls. “A nonstop physical comedy that turns the world of theater on its head!” Variety. “The audience laughed at everything!” L.A. Times. “Pick of the Month” L.A. Magazine. “Heartily entertaining!” L.A. Reader.
