Idris Seabright is one demented dame. A 1950's Florida gargoyle with
a penchant for painting still lifes, no matter how her subjects must be
stilled, she's as handy with a hachet as a brush and as rich as she is ruthless.
Drop Dead Perfect, written by Erasmus Fenn and directed by Joe Brancato,
finds Idris torn between her ingenuous ward who has artistic aspirations, a well-endowed Cuban ex-con who may be her nephew, and her pill-pushing lawyer.
Idris and Drop Dead Perfect are back after last year's sold-out run for a strictly
limited eight week engagement.
