Two very talented young men perform in this who-done-it. One is detective and the other plays a host of characters present at the time of the murder. Very easy to tell... continued

Description

Music/Book by Joe Kinosian

Lyrics/Book by Kellen Blair

Directed by David H. Bell

Developed at CST under the guidance of Creative Producer Rick Boynton, Murder for Two — A Killer Musical mixes the suspense of an Agatha Christie mystery with old-fashioned musical comedy and a dash of modern panache to tell the tale of an inspector’s crime investigation at the home of an recently deceased novelist. Hoping for a promotion to the ranks of detective, the inspector takes on the dangerous task of interrogating the murdered novelist’s eccentric relatives and so-called friends (all played by Kinosian) — and discovers that no one is who they appear to be.

A hilarious display of wits and musical showmanship, this madcap musical mystery will tickle the ivories and your funny bone.
