John Treacy Egan And More Star In CLUE: A NEW COMEDY at Cleveland Play House

Cleveland Play House has announced the cast of the new high-spirited, madcap mystery Clue: A New Comedy, based on the popular 1985 Paramount Pictures film and inspired by the classic Hasbro board game.

Led by Director Casey Hushion (Associate Director Mean Girls, Aladdin, The Prom), the cast features Broadway veterans John Treacy Egan (My Fair Lady, Sister Act, Little Mermaid), Kathy Fitzgerald (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Wicked, 9 to 5), Michael Kostroff (Les Miserables, HBO's The Wire), Alex Mandell (The Play That Goes Wrong, Hand to God), Mark Price (Mary Poppins, All Shook Up), Donna English (Nice Work If You Can Get It), Graham Stevens (In Transit) and Eleasha Gamble (Fiasco Theatre's Into the Woods), as well as Cleveland and CPH favorites Josh Innerst (CPH's Ken Ludwig's Sherwood), Mariah Burks (CPH's Shakespeare in Love, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee), and Elisabeth Yancey (CPH's Into the Breeches!).

This new adaptation is written by award-winning playwright Sandy Rustin, with additional materials written by Hunter Foster and Eric Price.

Murder and blackmail are on the menu when six mysterious guests assemble at the Boddy Manor for a night they'll never forget! Was it Mrs. Peacock in the study with the knife? Or was it Colonel Mustard in the library with the wrench? Based on the cult Paramount film, and inspired by the classic Hasbro board game, Clue is the ultimate whodunit that will leave you dying of laughter and keep you guessing until the final twist.

CPH Artistic Director Laura Kepley says, "With this stage production of Clue, the key is to embrace the spirit of the original material but also to depart from the film and have it stand on its own as a theatre piece."

Says Director Casey Hushion. "This show combines elements of farce and slapstick comedy with classic mystery and suspense. It is essential to buy into the truth and reality of the play as life and death stakes are at hand," she says.

Tickets can be purchased by calling the Box Office at 216.241.6000 or by visiting clevelandplayhouse.com. Performances will run January 25, 2020 through February 23, 2020 in the Allen Theatre at Playhouse Square.
