BWW Review:Crown City Theatre Delivers Agatha Christie's THE MOUSETRAP

Mystery writer Dame Agatha Christie never dreamed that her little play The Mousetrap that opened in 1952 would still be playing on London's West End, making it the longest running play in history. It's a favorite in high school and college drama programs and community theatre. I myself played Christopher Wren in the 70s in Massachusetts. It's popular because murder mystery fans love to sit on the edge of their seats as they try to figure out the identity of the culprit. Now in a strong production at Crown City Theatre in NoHo, The Mousetrap is alive - no pun intended - and captivating audiences through April and most likely beyond.
