The Tribute Artist is the latest from Charles Busch who wrote, directed and starred along with a pretty impressive cast. Two friends are hanging out with an older woman who doesn’t have any family or friends, but has a very valuable townhouse in Greenwich Village. When she dies, they impersonate in order to sell the house, and it turns that a niece shows to throw a monkey wrench into their plans. This is classic Charles Busch, it has high camp and low comedy, it won’t be up for any awards anytime soon, but it is fun 3 stars.
