Two Actors, a Piano and Tour de Force Performances

MurderForTwoApproved3

Murder for Two is a part-musical and part-mystery homage to the whodunit genre, with a hat-tip to Agatha Christie and Arthur Conan Doyle. Upon seeing the play for the first time, I was struck by how much can be accomplished by creative and talented minds in the world of theater. Two actors, a piano and tour de force performances create an entire world for the audience.

Without an orchestra, a cast of dozens, or sets and costumes galore, we are as magically and happily transported into this funny, sweet and irreverent romp, as if we were regaled by legions of actors and musicians. Scott Schwartz, Joe Kinosian and Kellen Blair have teamed up to infuse this piece with unbridled energy. With the incomparable Jeff Blumenkrantz and Brett Ryback — the original New York cast reunited — they have taken that
energy to new heights.

As we embark on the last Audrey play of 2014/2015, I thank you for coming along for the ride this season. From The Gospel According to Thomas Jefferson, Charles Dickens and Leo Tolstoy: Discord, into Switzerland and now Murder for Two, our goal, as always, is to infuse this intimate space with variety and surprises. We hope you have found both of these elements and so much more in this season of plays. We look forward to seeing you next season.

Murder for Two begins in the Audrey Skirball Kenis Theater at the Geffen Playhouse May 26. To purchase tickets, please click here.
