“Bad Grandmas” opens at Jaffrey’s River St Theatre this week.
By News Release
JAFFREY — Florence Henderson was known as the quintessential American Mom, in the 1970’s ABC network classic sitcom, The Brady Bunch. Ms. Henderson made her last film (she passed away in 2016) with a mom role very different from Mrs. Brady. She plays grandmother “Mimi” in Bad Grandmas which debuts this week at the River Street Theatre in downtown Jaffrey.
In the tradition of Bad Moms comes Bad Grandmas, a hilarious spoof on what it means to be a grandma. Four grandmothers accidentally kill a conman and, to cover it up, they get rid of the body. When the conman’s partner shows up, things go south. Starring with Florence Henderson is Pam Grier (Jackie Brown, Coffy, Foxy Brown) and Judge Reinhold (Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Beverly Hills Cop, Ruthless People).
RottenTomatoes gives Bad Grandmas a 92% Audience Score. Bad Grandmas is shown Thursday, December 14, Friday, December 15 and Saturday, December 16, all at 7pm plus a matinee on Saturday, December 16 at 2pm.
