Story

What is the Story of Murder For Two?
In a wacky and humorous mash-up of classic murder mysteries and old-school musical theater, Murder For Two tells the story of Officer Marcus Moscowicz, an aspiring detective who attempts to solve the murder of a prolific novelist in hopes that he’ll be promoted at work. While investigating the crime, Marcus meets 13 zany suspects, all played by one actor. From the bespectacled wife of the victim to the victim’s gruff, cigar-smoking therapist, Marcus must get to know the suspects and make sense of their wild stories in order to solve the crime.

Critics' Reviews

"Thanks to the elastic skills and collegial charm of those two actors, and a score that's several cuts above parody, ['Murder For Two'] is a winning diversion."

Review by Jeremy Gerard from Bloomberg News

"Joe Kinosian and Kellen Blair's score is a silly-clever throwback to 1950s novelty cabaret, and director Scott Schwartz milks the show for every drop of tomfoolery: vaudeville bits, sound effects, meta winks, audience participation."

Review by Adam Feldman from Time Out New York
