Following acclaimed runs in New York and London, Murder For Two is heading to the New Theatre from 23 – 27 October.
Murder For Two is a hilarious high-energy musical whodunit with a madcap twist and a loving homage to the canon of murder mystery plays. It’s a brilliant blend of music, mayhem and murder, with two actors playing thirteen characters – and the piano.
Ed MacArthur and Jeremy Legat, who both starred in the European Premiere in 2017, will both reprise their performances as ‘Officer Marcus Moscowicz’ and ‘The Suspects’. Ed MacArthur’s recent credits include The Borrowers (Watermill Theatre) and Arcadia (UK Tour). Jeremy Legat was recently seen in Crazy For You (Watermill Theatre) with other credits including Grey Gardens (Southwark Playhouse) and Wicked (Apollo Victoria Theatre).
In Murder For Two famous novelist Arthur Whitney is found dead at his birthday party and the detectives are called. The only problem is, they’re out of town. Enter Officer Marcus Moscowicz, a neighbourhood cop who dreams of climbing the ranks. With the clock ticking, it’s up to Marcus to prove his super sleuthing skills and solve the crime before the real detective arrives…
Murder For Two has Book and Music by Joe Kinosian, with Book and Lyrics by Kellen Blair. It was recently a hit Off-Broadway, playing at Second Stage Theatre in 2013 before transferring to New World Stages, where the run was extended several times. It received its European Premiere at The Watermill Theatre in Newbury in 2017 before transferring to The Other Palace in London later that year.
