AS BEES IN HONEY DROWN is Douglas Carter Beane's Award-winning comedy about deception, fraud, embezzlement, sexual politics, elusive fame, amoral women, sitting-duck men and REVENGE. Boston's acclaimed Joey DeMita will direct this now infamous play about a con-woman named Alexa Vere de Vere who preys on the almost-famous, promising to fulfill their wildest dreams of superstardom. She leaves her victims in the dust, holding their maxed-out credit cards in disbelief as they stand in line at their local banks trying desperately to convince the branch managers that their accounts couldn't possibly be empty.
Alexa is beautiful, exotic, enchanting and seductive.
Her vocabulary is intoxicating.
She speaks a language only the celebrity-starved can hear.
She used to be called Brenda Gelb. But that was a long time and at fifty victims ago.
Her latest "mark" is first-time author Evan Wyler who used to be called Eric Wollenstein.
She hunts him down, dazzles him, strips him financially bare and leaves him for dead.
But he's not dead.
He's very much alive and fuelled by an unquenchable desire for Revenge.
In Act II, he gets it!
AS BEES IN HONEY DROWN originally opened in early June of 1997, Off-Off Broadway at The Greenwich House to rave reviews which propelled it to a glittering Off-Broadway Premiere seven weeks later on July 24th at the Lucille Lortel Theatre where it ran for 366 performances through July 7, 1998.
