PERFECT ARRANGEMENT Comes to ActorsNET This Month Photo PERFECT ARRANGEMENT Comes to ActorsNET This Month
by Stephi Wild - Apr 12, 2022

Communists weren’t the only ones hunted during the “Red Scare” of the 1950s. Gays and lesbians were also targeted as threats to the USA as part of the “Lavender Scare.”  “Coming out of the closet” was almost unheard-of, as it could easily end a career or even a life. And no one even considered the possibility of gay marriage.

BWW Review: Ken Ludwig's MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS at Stageworks Theatre Photo BWW Review: Ken Ludwig's MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS at Stageworks Theatre
by Drew Eberhard - Apr 3, 2022

Murder on the Orient Express a stage adaptation of the Agatha Christie novel was written and adapted by Ken Ludwig and premiered in New Jersey in 2017. Based on the Christie novel that was first published in the United States in February 1934, and originally published under the name Murder on the Calais Coach. The twisted plot is full of a wild cast of characters. As Poirot puts it, “It was like a painting by Pablo Picasso.” We open the play in Istanbul at the Tokatlian Hotel, as we meet Poirot we understand he is due in London in three days' time due to the delivery of a telegram, and he runs into his old friend Bouc. His friend then arranges a trip on the Orient Express which he is the owner, and the two climb aboard with Poirot hoping he makes it to London on schedule. Upon boarding the Orient Express one by one Poirot meets an oddity of characters much like boarding a train to Carnival. As the train departs the station amidst the snowy conditions like an onion we see the layers of each of the passengers peeled back one by one.
