Equal parts Agatha Christie, Groucho Marx, and Cole Porter, this hilarious musical whodunit is an affectionate and ingenious homage to the old-fashioned murder mystery. Lavishly praised by the critics during its New York premiere,  this whirlwind 90-minute duet boasts a cast of exactly two: one performer to investigate the crime, the other to play all of the suspects. And of course they both play the piano… Murder for Two: putting the “laughter” back in “manslaughter”!

Program Notes

By Wynne DeMille

Everyone is a suspect in this house of eccentric characters.

This musical play is a mixture of classic music, comedy, and Agatha Christie. It combines vaudeville farce, witty writing, and fast paced piano! Murder For Two is considered a musical comedy in Cabaret Theater style, both a wacky and humorous combo of the classic murder mystery and old time musical theater.

Everyone is a suspect in this house of eccentric characters unfazed by the dead body on the floor! But this whodunit comes with a twist, performed by two actors, one who investigates the crime while the other plays all nine suspects and both of whom play the piano! So while stealing turns at the piano, one actor sets out as the police officer, to solve the mystery of the dead man, the other has to tackle a revolving lineup of many varied and outrageous suspects such as Barrette Lewis, a Prima Ballerina; Dr. Griff; and Dahlia Whitney, the victim’s wife, to name a few.

Officer Marcus Moscowicz is a small town policeman with big dreams of making it to the status of detective. One fateful night shots ring out at the surprise birthday party of a Great American Novelist, Arthur Whitney, in a remote New England mansion, and the writer is killed. This sets up the story for this fast, crazy, fun ride through this murder mystery.

The book and music for this unusual and many faceted mystery is by Joe Kinosian and the book and lyrics are by Kellen Blair. The world premiere was at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater on July 25, 2013 and a huge success. It was then followed by Broadway Rose Theater Company and 2nd Stage Theater Uptown. Our Barn alum Stephen Schwartz’s son Scott Schwartz was director of the off Broadway production at New World Stages and 2nd Stage Uptown. The play won the Joseph Jefferson Award for best new musical work and in 2013 the Rodgers/Hart Award as well. It was also nominated for two Drama Desk Awards and an Outer Critic Circle award.

This is the first time this play/musical has been presented on our Barn stage. “So hold your breath, brace yourself and prepare for a riotous, insane ride through a murder mystery unlike anything you’ve seen before!”

The Barn recommends that patrons allow a minimum of 30 minutes in order to secure parking, pick up their tickets, and find their way to their seats. Latecomers will be seated at the discretion of the House Manager, and will be asked to wait on the Porch until a momentary pause in the action makes seating less disruptive to other patrons. Due to the Barn’s intimate scale, it may be impossible to seat latecomers in their purchased seat locations without causing significant disturbance to other patrons; should that be the case, the House Manager will seat you in an alternate location, and an usher will help you find your original seat locations at intermission.

To that end, the Barn is thrilled to offer the following programs for the young artists, both on stage and behind-the-scenes, in your home:

Junior Intern Program

The Junior Intern Company is comprised of 30 young performers aged 12-18 who, over the course of nine weeks, rehearse, build and perform in the Children’s Theatre Series.
