Murder for Two Musical Gets Chicago Extension Through July 31

News   Murder for Two Musical Gets Chicago Extension Through July 31
 
The run of Murder for Two — A Killer Musical has been extended by six weeks, to July 31, at Chicago Shakespeare Theater.

Created by Joe Kinosian (music and book) and Kellen Blair (lyrics and book), the "90-minute Agatha Christie-like whodunit musical comes with a surprising twist: one actor plays the inspector, the other plays all ten suspects, and both play the piano." The Sun-Times critic called the score "deft pastiche."

Staged by CST veteran director David H. Bell, the Chicago premiere features the show's co-creator Kinosian playing the slew of hilarious would-be criminals and Chicago favorite Alan Schmuckler performing the role of the inspector.

Murder for Two — A Killer Musical creators Joe Kinosian and Kellen Blair met in the BMI Musical Theatre Workshop, where they are advanced members. Kinosian received a Jerry Harrington Award for Creative Excellence from the BMI Foundation in 2009.

Previews began May 12 toward a May 17 opening for a run scheduled to June 19.

Tickets for Murder for Two — A Killer Musical, Upstairs at Chicago Shakespeare, are $25-$30. For information or to purchase tickets, contact Chicago Shakespeare Theater's box office at (312) 595-5600 or visit the Theater's website at www.chicagoshakes.com/murder.
