Arsenic and Old Lace

La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts
14900 La Mirada Boulevard La Mirada

Combining murder and mayhem with zany humor, Arsenic and Old Lace is an uproarious black comedy that gives “hospitality” a bad name. Meet Abby and Martha Brewster, two spinster sisters known for their acts of charity – which lately includes poisoning lonely, old men with their homemade arsenic-laced elderberry wine. When their nephew Mortimer finds out about the corpses in the cellar, he’s in a frantic race to deal with his aunts, his fiancée, and two crazy brothers – one who thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt and the other who has had plastic surgery to resemble Boris Karloff! Don’t miss one of America’s most popular classic comedies in a spiffy new production that will slay you with laughter.

Stage and Cinema - Highly Recommended

"...Over the years, this oft-produced play has lost its adoration, largely due to the catastrophes that have taken place on community theater stages. I didn't even make it to the second act of last year's Arsenic at The Odyssey Theatre. But this production proves why the play is a masterpiece of black comedy."

Stage Scene LA - Highly Recommended

"...The Brewster sisters are once again at their mirthfully murderous ways in La Mirada Theatre’s pitch-perfect revival of the 1941 Broadway classic Arsenic And Old Lace."
