Its not quite film noir, but it does include all the crazy ways to kill your husband, says Avenues Bob Wells. One weapon used is an arsenic-laced suppository, with the attempted murder performed in full view of the audience. You can tell where it goes from there.... Throw in a lot of silly, edgy, crisp dialogue and the magic touch of director Nick Sugar (a veteran of the late Theatre on Broadway, where Busch-style fare thrived), and youve got a true gem of camp. This is really Nicks forte, Wells adds. In a previous life, I believe he was Lana Turner.
