It took a moment to get into this production but it was very enjoyable even with only three characters and a minimal set. The lead actress was very engaging. Seemed like when it got going, it could have went longer. The Marsh has a great bar...continued

Well written play, but not much action or moving on the stage. Manya excellent lines, but sometimes the pacing was so fast that things were missed by many in the audience
the advertised special music before the show appeared so late that there...continued

The play was great and the venue, set up as a cabaret lounge, was quite nice. I liked the plot twist at the end. Parking is an issue but there is a parking garage one block over which has an exit to Allston Way. The cabaret prior to the play...continued

I liked it better than I thought I would.
Mostly a monologue by the "noir dick" with few interjections from the other two characters.

The Marsh is a great venue. The actors were very good. The script was not engaging. It's a good take off on noir with some clever jokes but too little happens in the script to keep my interest. It's a noir play, not a mystery, but even as that...continued

Excellently staged and costumed. The lighting and ability to create intriuge was great. The coreography interest adding. The casting was curiously refreshing with some old and some new themes at work. Actors lines were believable and the ability...continued

The Berkeley Marsh is set up with cabaret style seating with tables, it's roomy and quite nice. The play has a twisty plot that intrigues the audience. It was entertaining.

Delightful, amusing, fast-paced, and well-twisted. It may not be high drama, but most of the time that I attend local theater, I wish I had picked a movie instead, not this time.

It is an unusual play, the actors are good, the story well built. The piano as a support of the play was a great concept.

Good small ensemble cast. A few misteps in the staging but nice characterizations and the pianist was lovely and pitch perfect throughout the proceedings. We had a great time.

Really fun little place! The crowd was eclectic and cool. The cabaret was refreshing. The play was so cleverly written. The private detective was perfect. Good stuff all around!

Enjoyed A Killer Story - wasn't sure what to expect? I brought my 10 year old niece to the performance, since she's really into solving mysteries. I thought it would be fun for us to try and figure out the plot together. Unfortunately the...

The play was interesting, the music was fun - but the line at the bar was ridiculous! Three people behind the bar - only one making drinks - two just standing around.
