Complete casting has been announced for the first off-Broadway revival of Arthur Bicknell’s infamous 1983 flop Moose Murders. The Beautiful Soup Theater Collective's 30th anniversary revival will be directed by Steven McCasland and will feature a “shamelessly revised” script by Bicknell. Moose Murders will play New York’s Connelly Theatre January 29, 2013 through February 10.
The revival of Moose Murders will feature McCasland, Caroline Rosenblum, Cory Boughton, Ali Bernstein, Dennis DelBene, Orlando Iriarte, Anna Kirkland, Steven Carl McCasland, Noelle Stewart, Jordan Tierney and Brittany Velotta.
One of Broadway’s most notorious flops, Moose Murders played 13 previews at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre before closing on February 22, 1983. The play centers around a series of murders that take place while the Holloway and Keene families are stranded at the Wild Moose Lodge in the Adirondack Mountains.
Moose Murders will feature set and costume design by Dennis DelBene, lighting design by Christopher D’Angelo and fight direction Christopher Stokes. A portion of box office proceeds for Moose Murders will benefit GLSEN: The Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network.
