This captivating world premiere with a metaphysical twist navigates the paths of romance, marriage and parenting while exploring the pains and pleasures of all three.

Book and Lyrics by Kellen Blair

Who killed the great American novelist Arthur Whitney? Found dead in his isolated, rural mansion on the night of his surprise birthday party, every guest has a motive – their dirty little secrets the unwilling and barely veiled subject of the author’s bestsellers. Was the killer his loopy, scene-stealing widow? His overly curious niece? The too-friendly psychiatrist? Or the glamorous, but menacing, prima ballerina? One actor plays the overwhelmed detective while another takes on all of the suspects, creating a zany, musical comedy whodunit.
“Murder for Two” is performed by two piano-playing actors.
Marcus Moscowicz: An ambitious young officer who also provides voices to 2 characters in flashback.
The Suspects: Plays up to 10 different suspects who vary in age and station
