Five years ago, Orlando actor Doug Ba’aser welcomed the whole world into his living room. Actually, he invited the planet into Joan Crawford’s House Party at her Brentwood estate (vis a vis a Fringe performance) in which he plays the well-known actress and inspiration for the book and film Mommie Dearest, penned by her adopted daughter Christina Crawford.
“It was a huge success; it was a major sell out,” he recalls. “It won Best in Fringe and we sold out the beautiful Pink Venue. Actually that show came from my lovely Brentwood home. Or at least guests were transformed into celebrants at my Brentwood home as soon as they walked in.”
