Casting Announced For MURDER FOR TWO At Playhouse On Park
Beat the winter blues with a trip to Playhouse on Park this January as it continues its Main Stage series with the hilarious Murder for Two, book and music by Joe Kinosian and book and lyrics by Kellen Blair, opening on January 16.
Everyone is a suspect in Murder for Two, an uproariously funny musical murder mystery with a twist: one actor investigates the crime, the other plays all of the suspects. And they both do this while playing the piano! A zany blend of classic musical comedy and madcap mystery, this 90-minute whodunit is a highly theatrical duet loaded with killer laughs.
