The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940

October 15 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

A murder mystery with blizzard conditions, secret passageways, and musical snippets, creating Agatha-Christie-meets-Clue whodunnit parody.

The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 is not your typical murder mystery. An eccentric heiress has invited a group of theatre people to her home on the pretense of holding a backer’s audition for a new musical. The creative team for this new project were also involved in a recent Broadway flop that closed abruptly when three of its showgirls were mysteriously murdered. As the mayhem unfolds, it’s not long before bodies are dropping once again and everyone’s a suspect. Will the mystery of the “Stage Door Slasher” be untangled before it’s too late?

“An ingenious and wildly comic romp which enjoyed a long and critically hailed run both on and Off-Broadway. Poking antic fun at the more ridiculous aspects of “show biz” and the corny thrillers of Hollywood’s heyday, the play is a non-stop barrage of laughter as those assembled (or at least those who aren’t killed off) untangle the mystery of the “Stage Door Slasher.” NY Magazine
