As the devastating effects of Superstorm Sandy ravage the East Coast, one of the most distressed areas is Staten Island. In an effort to ease some of the financial burden producer Robert Nicotra and Contagious Laughter LLC will donate 5% of all tickets sold through November 25th to the dark comedy, Let's Kill Grandma This Christmas, to Superstorm Sandy relief in Staten Island.
"Sandy's effects will continue to be felt by the residents of NJ and NY, in particular Staten Island, for quite some time. With the holidays growing nearer it will be even more difficult. We are humbled to do whatever we can in the effort to help Staten Island residents rebuild their city and their lives," Producer, Robert Nicotra, Contagious Laughter LLC, said.
The World Premiere of Let's Kill Grandma This Christmas is written by Brian Gianci and directed by John Dapolito. Let's Kill Grandma This Christmas will begin performances on Sunday, November 25; it will celebrate its opening on Monday, December 3 and will run through January 6, 2013 at the Theatre at St. Clement's (423 West 46th Street). Tickets are $69 and can be purchased by visiting letskillgrandmatheplay.com, 5% of each ticket sold through November 25, will be donated to Superstorm Sandy relief in Staten Island.
The Holidays are murder… literally. This year stuff your stocking with rat poison, a pistol, octogenarian sex, a little giggle-weed, and a family hungry for more than Grandma's Christmas dinner. Possessed by greed, the family plots and schemes murder in order to get Grandma's money. Let's Kill Grandma This Christmas is a twisted black comedy that says there's no place like six feet under for The Holidays.
