42nd Street Moon's Next Opening: West Coast Premiere of Murder for Two

It's a first for 42nd Street Moon (on whose board I sit). They're actually producing a West Coast premiere of a new musical, Murder for Two.

Here's the official scuttlebutt:

Join us for the West Coast Premiere of this hilarious new musical! Take two parts Agatha Christie, mix with one part old-fashioned musical comedy, add a dash of 21st century flair, and you've got Murder For Two, A Killer Musical.

An inspector arrives at an old, dark house to solve a murder and encounters a host of eccentric and cunning suspects. The twist? One actor plays the inspector, the other plays all 13 suspects, and they both play the piano!

It sounds like a great combo of a murder mystery, musical, and novelty play featuring multi-tasking Greater Tuna.

If you want to learn more, from the horses' mouths so to speak, here are some interviews with the creators on the 42nd Street Moon blog.

42nd Street Moon's Latest: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

Tomorrow I'm off to see the season opener for 42nd Street Moon (on whose Board I sit).

The show is Stephen Sondheim's A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, and it's getting some bang-up reviews!!

Like this rave for the non-traditional casting choice for the role of Pseudolus, Megan Cavanaugh.

And this one from the SF Examiner.

I'm looking forward to it, and expect to be thoroughly entertained by a silly show with tremendously fun music and clever lyrics.
