Way Off Broadway To Host A FAIRYTALE STORYBOOK WHO DUNNIT?

In addition to its regular Mainstage Season, Way Off Broadway has become known for its special events throughout the year. Notably, its interactive murder mysteries in which the audience gets involved and helps solve the case at hand.

The newest installment of the Marquee Mysteries Series is A Fairytale Storybook Who Dunnit? which will appear at the theatre for three performances only on Friday evening, March 3rd, Saturday evening, March 4th, and Sunday afternoon, March 5th.

Detective stories and mysteries have been a part of entertainment culture for as long as anyone can remember. From the days of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Agatha Christie to the modern television crime shows of today, everyone loves a good mystery, and everyone thinks they can be the next Sherlock Holmes. Way Off Broadway and Justin M. Kiska's Marquee Mysteries, they have that chance.

But as storybook characters gather to honor the Fairy Godmother for her centuries of service, the festivities are interrupted by murder! Can one of the fairytale characters we've all grown up with be a killer? Maybe they aren't all really who we think they are. Everyone is a suspect and all of the guests at Way Off Broadway are asked to help catch a killer.

Bringing the classic fairytale characters to life for this hilarious murder mis-adventure are Betsey Whitmore Brannen as the Fairy Godmother, Dino P. Coppa, Sr. as Rumplestiltskin, Brian Kaider as Prince Charming, Pam Neely as the Evil Witch, Shannon Wells as Little Red Riding Hood, and Megan Elizabeth West as Gretel.

Review: DONT BOTHER ME, I CANT COPE at Bmore Broadway Live Photo
What did our critic think of DON'T BOTHER ME, I CAN'T COPE at Bmore Broadway Live? Dance and Bmore, one of the newer players on the Baltimore theatre scene, has launched its inaugural program, Bmore Broadway Live, with a production of Vinette Carroll's award winning musical, Don't Bother Me, I Can't Cope (I'm just going to set up the abbreviation right here, ok? DBMICC.) And what a production this is! I'll tell you, I was exhausted in the best possible way from all that hooting and hollering, swaying and stomping.
