Getting its Paper Mill production after a postponement in the fall of 2020, murder and blackmail are back on the menu when six mysterious guests assemble for a dinner party at Boddy Manor. Was it Mrs. Peacock in the study with the knife? Or Colonel Mustard in the library with the wrench? Based on the cult 1985 Paramount movie and inspired by the classic Hasbro game, this farce-meets-murder-mystery is bloody good fun.

Clue, based on the screenplay by Jonathan Lynn (My Cousin Vinny, Nuns on the Run), is written by Sandy Rustin (Paper Mill's recent production of A Jolly Holiday: Celebrating Disney's Broadway Hits) with additional material by Tony Award nominee Hunter Foster (Urinetown and Little Shop of Horrors on Broadway) and Eric Price (The Violet Hour, Radioactive). Based on the Paramount Motion Piction and the Hasbro Board Game, Clue features original music by Michael Holland (Godspell on Broadway).

The production features scenic design by Lee Savage (The Lightning Thief on Broadway), costume design by Jen Caprio (Songs for a New World, Beehive at Paper Mill), lighting design by Ryan J. O'Gara (Thoughts of a Colored Man on Broadway), sound design by Matt Kraus (A Jolly Holiday, Songs for a New World at Paper Mill), hair and wig design by J. Jared Janas (A Jolly Holiday, Songs for a New World at Paper Mill), and casting by Binder Casting and JZ Casting. Rick Sordelet (Tina, The Lion King on Broadway) serves as fight director/intimacy consultant and production stage manager is Jill Gold (Wicked, City of Angels national tours).
