Who Murdered Love? was penned by director Moira and Richard West. The musical, which is set in 1924 New York City and in a Paris dreamscape, "follows WWI veteran and private eye, 'Sleepy' Sam Speed, Gail Friday and Everett Greene, as they attempt to unravel the disappearance and possible murder of DaDa Love, at the behest of their client, the stunning heiress Honey Potts. DaDa Love is at the center of the world of DaDa artists, at the time when the Surrealists are vying for artistic supremacy. Their quest leads the trio through a mad adventure sparked by artistic and sexual jealously, as they find themselves inside an Absinthe dream, peopled by outrageous artists of every stripe – some, very predatory, indeed!"
The production will also feature musical direction and arrangements by Chris Wade, choreography by Stephen Brotebeck, costume design by Lytza Colón and Ryan Matthieu Smith and lighting design by William Giraldo. William J. Vila serves as production stage manager.
