The new stage adaptation of Clue, based on the popular 1985 film of the same name and currently playing Bucks County Playhouse, is set to tour North America beginning in the fall of 2018.
Adapted by Jonathan Lynn from his original screenplay, the whodunit began performances in New Hope, Pennsylvania, May 3 and continues through May 20. The same cohort of producers behind the world premiere will present the national tour: The Araca Group, Work Light Productions, Michael Barra Productions, and Aged in Wood Productions.
Clue features additional material by Eric Price and Hunter Foster, who is at the helm of the Bucks County staging. The touring cast and an itinerary will be announced at a later date.
Based on the film, which itself was inspired by the family board game, Clue is a murder mystery and comedy that takes place in a remote mansion. Six mysterious guests assemble for an unusual dinner party—their host is dead, and they are all suspects.
Clue’s creative team is made up of composer Michael Holland (Godspell), scenic designer Anna Louizos (School of Rock, Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella), and lighting designer Ryan O'Gara (After Midnight, Lady Day).
