Murder for Two, the two-person whodunit musical starring Jeff Blumenkrantz and Brett Ryback as suspects and detective, respectively, opened Off-Broadway Nov. 6, following previews that began Oct. 23, at New World Stages.
The New York premiere of the musical comedy — first seen last summer in Second Stage Theatre's 2013 Uptown Series — featuring music by Joe Kinosian, lyrics by Kellen Blair and a book by Kinosian and Blair, is directed by Scott Schwartz (Golda's Balcony, Jane Eyre).
Blumenkrantz (Into the Woods, Threepenny Opera, Damn Yankees, How to Succeed…, A Class Act) plays a multitude of characters — all suspects — alongside the up-and-coming detective Marcus, played by Ryback (The History Boys at Ahmanson, The Lieutenant of Inishmore at the Mark Taper Forum), in the piece.
