NC Theatre Announces Casting For MURDER FOR TWO
North Carolina Theatre, the region's premiere nonprofit professional theatre, is proud to announce casting for its upcoming production of Murder for Two, playing April 26-May 5, 2019 in A.J. Fletcher Opera Theater at Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Raleigh.
The perfect blend of music, mayhem and murder! In this hilarious show, two performers play 13 roles-not to mention the piano-in a witty and winking homage to old-fashioned murder mysteries. You won't want to miss this killer musical comedy.
Starring in the role of Marcus Moscowicz, an ambitious young police officer, is New York City-based songwriter and actor Brandon Lambert. He previously starred in the first national tour, Canadian premiere, and various regional productions of Murder for Two. His debut musical At First Sight was commissioned and produced by the Mountain Playhouse in 2017. He's also had five Theatre for Young Audiences musicals commissioned and produced by Mt. Gretna Theatre.
Martin Landry will play The Suspects in NC Theatre's production of Murder for Two. Since joining the national tour of Murder for Two in early 2015, Martin has appeared as both The Suspects and Marcus at nine different theatres in eight different states. His New York credits include Til Divorce Do Us Part, George Bailey in It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play, and Son of a Gun.
J. Scott Lapp will direct Murder for Two after working as the Associate Off-Broadway director and helming the national tour. He is an alumnus of the Directors Lab West, and is the Artistic Director of The Barn Stage Company in Temecula, CA. His previous Associate/Assistant Directing credits include Bonnie & Clyde on Broadway), Prince of Egypt (International production), and the national tour and Off-Broadway productions of Murder for Two.
