THE MUSICAL COMEDY MURDERS OF 1940
Directed by Julia Tadlock
Sponsored by Twombly Wealth Management and Experienced Goods
The creative team responsible for a recent Broadway flop in which three chorus girls were murdered by the mysterious "Stage Door Slasher" assemble for a backer's audition at the estate of a wealthy angel. The house is replete with sliding panels, secret passageways, and a German maid who is apparently four different people -- all of which figure diabolically in the mayhem which follows when the infamous "Slasher" makes his reappearance and strikes again -- and again.
As the team prepare their performance, huddled inside from a paralyzing blizzard, bodies start to drop in plain sight, knives spring out of nowhere, masked figures drag their victims out of sight, and accusing fingers point in all directions. A slapstick, side-splitter with a generous serving of satiric and irreverent wit, this whodunit will have audiences laughing from start to finish!
Performances: October 6, 7, 8 & 13, 14, 15
Performances: October 27, 28, 29 & November 3, 4, 5
