When famous novelist Arthur Whitney is found dead at his birthday party, it’s time to call in the detectives. The only problem is, they’re out of town. Enter Officer Marcus Moscowicz, a neighbourhood cop who dreams of climbing the ranks. With the clock ticking, it’s up to Marcus to prove his super sleuthing skills and solve the crime before the real detective arrives…
A hilarious high-energy musical whodunit, Murder For Two is a madcap murder mystery with a twist. Two actors play thirteen characters – and the piano – in this acclaimed 2011 American musical hit. A loving homage to the canon of murder mystery plays, Murder For Two is a hysterical blend of music, mayhem and murder.
Ed MacArthur and Jeremy Legat reprise their performances as Officer Marcus Moscowicz and The Suspects respectively. MacArthur’s recent credits include The Borrowers (Watermill Theatre) and Arcadia (UK Tour). Legat was recently seen in Crazy For You (Watermill Theatre) with other credits including Grey Gardens (Southwark Playhouse) and Wicked (Apollo Victoria Theatre).
Murder For Two has book and music by Joe Kinosian, with book and lyrics by Kellen Blair. It was recently a huge hit Off-Broadway, playing at Second Stage Theatre in 2013 before transferring to New World Stages, where the run was extended several times. This UK production is directed by Luke Sheppard (In The Heights) with musical direction and sound design by Tom Attwood (Peter and the Starcatcher) and design by Gabriella Slade (The Importance Of Being Earnest).
