Main Stage Series

January 16th - February 3rd


Book and Music by Joe Kinosian
Book and Lyrics by Kellen Blair

Directed by Kyle Metzger

Everyone is a suspect in MURDER FOR TWO, a hilarious musical murder mystery with a twist: One actor investigates the crime, the other plays all of the suspects. And they both play the PIANO! A zany blend of classic musical comedy and madcap mystery, this 90-minute whodunit is a highly theatrical duet loaded with killer laughs.

“Ingenious...a snazzy vaudevillian double-act. With just two actors, a piano and a prop or two, the show spins out a curlicued comic mystery story animated by funny, deftly turned songs.” --New York Times

“One has to be swept away by the zany delirium of it all!” --LA Times
