OPENING NIGHT FILMWhen conservative Texas church-choir director Maybelline inherits her recently deceased son’s drag club, she surprises her closed-minded husband and everyone else she knows by moving alone to San Francisco to save the club from bankruptcy. In this raucous, racy new environment, she begins to open up and find new meaning for her life, even becoming a mother-figure to the club’s flamboyant performers. Starring Oscar-Nominated Jackie Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook, Animal Kingdom), Adrian Grenier (Entourage, The Devil Wears Prada), Emmy-Nominated Lucy Liu (Charlie’s Angels, Elementary, Ally McBeal), Mya Taylor (Tangerine) and the legendary Jackie Beat, Stage Mother is an optimistic, olive branch of sorts between Southern Baptist suburbia and San Francisco gaytopia - and who couldn't use an olive branch these days?
