“Jacki Weaver gives a luminous performance ”
“ When life is a drag, cue the chorus”
Every family needs a Queen
When conservative, Texas church choir director Maybelline (Jacki Weaver) inherits her recently deceased son’s drag club, she surprises her closed-minded husband and everyone else she knows by moving alone to San Francisco to save the club from bankruptcy. In this raucous, vibrant environment, she begins to open up and find new meaning for her life, even becoming a mother figure to the club’s flamboyant performers …until a surprise visit threatens to upend her new life. Stage Mother is a dance in your seat, music-infused comedy-drama that boasts a fiery supporting cast, including Lucy Liu, Adrian Grenier, Mya Taylor and drag superstar Jackie Beat.
