Murder for Two

Murder-for-Two-at-Chicago-ShakesMurder has never been this fun!  The screamingly funny comedy Murder for Two at New World Stages is a laugh riot from start to finish.  When Arthur Whitney – the guest of honor at a surprise birthday party – turns up dead, only this cast of crazy misfits can help a wanna-be detective solve the puzzle.  But Officer Moscowicz better hurry up with his crime-solving before another body hits the floor.  And to complicate matters more, some guests seem more concerned with solving the mystery of the missing ice cream than with solving the murder.

With two brilliant comedic actors playing a dozen over-the-top characters, the stars of this show have their work cut out for them.  But their talents extend far beyond just expertly singing and dancing – their jaw-dropping piano ‘battles’ will have you leaping to your feet.  Some of their more memorable character creations including a loose-lipped ballerina, a stardom-driven widow, a bickering old couple, and a lonely psychotherapist – all of which will keep you in stitches and on the edge of your seat.
