Everyone is a suspect in this perfect blend of music, mayhem, and murder! This zany blend of classic musical comedy and madcap mystery is a whodunit loaded with laughs. One actor plays the inspector and the other actor plays all 13 suspects, while both accompany themselves on the piano throughout the show! Written by Joe Kinosian and Kellen Blair, Murder For Two had its premiere at Chicago Shakespeare Theatre in 2011 and has since played to sold-out audiences all over the country.

In this 2022 Playhouse version, prominent local talent Kevin Kelly will appear alongside popular Boston area actor Jared Troilo to make up the zany duet. Sam Forrest will accompany on percussion. Christopher Leavy will music direct and Playhouse Artistic Director Roy Alan will direct and choreograph the production.

Show credits include The Andrews Brothers, Forever Plaid, Ruthless, Musical of Musicals, and [title of show] just to name a few. His Sinatra-like quality has garnered him title roles in The Rat Pack Lounge, Christmas My Way and the like. Kevin is known for his crooner-style, velvety smooth vocals and stellar comedic delivery. He has been a featured soloist with The Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra and The Sarasota Symphony.

Jared Troilo is a well-known Equity actor in the Boston area and a proud graduate of The Boston Conservatory. He has appeared on the stages of the Palace Theatre, Moonbox Productions, Shadowland Stages, Greater Boston Stage Company, Reagle Music Theatre, The Barnstormers Theatre, Fiddlehead Theatre Company and many others.
