The first production to take place in The Other Palace Studio will be musical whodunit Murder for Two.
A Watermill Theatre production in association with Paul Taylor-Mills. Book and music by Joe Kinosian, book and lyrics by Kellen Blair. Directed by Luke Sheppard, with musical direction by Tom Attwood, designed by Gabriella Slade. Murder for Two is Paul Taylor Mills and Luke Sheppard’s first collaboration since the Olivier Award winning musical In The Heights.
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. A loving homage to the canon of murder mystery plays, Murder For Two is a blend of music, mayhem and murder.
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.
Murder For Two was recently a huge hit Off-Broadway. The production will have its British stage premiere at The Watermill Theatre prior to it run at The Other Palace.
MURDER FOR TWO will play at The Other Palace Studio Thursday 2 March – Saturday 18 March 2017 www.theotherpalace.co.uk
