No wire hangers, no Mommie Dearest: Christina Crawford show about Joan Crawford canceled

Surviving Mommie Dearest, Christina Crawford’s stage show about life with mother Joan Crawford, didn’t survive its premiere this week in Key West.

Slow ticket sales in Broward apparently forced the show to be canceled Saturday night at the Rose and Alfred Miniaci Performing Arts Center at Nova Southeastern University in Davie.

From a reader who saw the show Wednesday night at the Tennessee Williams Theatre in Key West:

"The first half was bad enough but the second half was so bad someone screamed ENOUGH, got up and left. I think the whole audience felt the same way. I know I did."

HOORAY!!!! That 'wanna-be' has been living off of a woman who she claims was a 'Monster' for way too long. ENOUGH ALREADY! Go slither under the boards somewhere, and leave us alone!

The truth is somewhere in the middle. Go read about it in gloriously documented detail on www.joancrawfordbest.com

As the opening of "Surviving Mommie Dearest" staring Christina Crawford, fans gathered at the 5 Points Theater in Jacksonville, FL; no one knew what to really expect. A multi-media show with never before seen photos and video clips of Chris...Tina & Joan Crawford were revealed. The tabloid bit was the crush that Christina had on a 19 year when she was ONLY 13 years and had semi stolen right from underneath her friend. We must say the most interesting and intriguing part was the second act that found Christina with the ability to let go of the past and move forward with her "Hollywood Life" that has played out on stage and the big screen for all to see. Her story is one that we will not soon forget.
