The off-Broadway musical murder mystery Murder For Two will play its final performance at New World Stages on June 29. The tuner, starring Brett Ryback and Jeff Blumenkrantz, had previously been scheduled to run through July 6.
Featuring a book by Joe Kinosian and Kellen Blair, music by Kinosian and lyrics by Blair, Murder For Two combines classic musical comedy with a dash of Agatha Christie. Everyone is a suspect in this house of eccentric characters (all played by Blumenkrantz), and a rookie cop posing as a detective (Blumenkrantz) must get down to the bottom of the crime.
Murder For Two was originally presented by the Second Stage Uptown Series at the McGinn/Cazale Theatre last July to critical acclaim. The production transferred to New World Stages in November, where it was initially slated to run through January 5 only.
