You can help solve a shocking murder mystery in this fun, crowd-pleasing whodunnit full of war-weary G.I.s, lusty Rio de Janeiro residents and plenty of twists and turns. While preparing for the spectacle of a 1940s Carnival, a local dictator's henchman searches for his love-starved wife amidst the throbbing pulse of the samba. Meanwhile, undercover Allied secret agents comb the crowds on the lookout for a murderously sadistic German officer desperately fleeing through the throngs of costumed dancing revelers. It isn't long before blood is shed and bodies start to fall. One lucky sleuth in the audience has a chance to solve the crime and win a prize in this colorful Staged Cinema production. Learn More

What the_ New York Post _called “The funniest farce ever written,” Noises Off returns to the stage at The Maverick Theater. Michael Frayn’s (Copenhagen, Democracy) critically acclaimed play-within-a-play follows a theatrical company’s desperate attempt to perform their own farce, “Nothing On.” The show begins watching a thoroughly unprepared final dress rehearsal, and continues through two more nights of performances seen from both on-stage and back-stage. The actors create a first-rate farce of their own—forgetting lines, dropping trousers, and losing countless plates of sardines. Behind the scenes, love triangles and ruined affairs add fury and revenge to the mayhem under the lights, leading to pratfalls, flying props and more than one bloody nose. In the end, at the frenetic final performance, the two farces merge into one perfectly ravaged and wholly uproarious theatrical nervous breakdown.
Directed by Maverick co-owner Nathan Makaryk who also manages the improv troupe Improv Shmimprov, which has successfully entertained O.C. audiences every weekend for the last 3 and half years. The entire show is staged on a two story set that rotates 180 degrees between acts. Performed on the Maverick’s Main Stage; audiences will find themselves so close to the action they might smell the Sardines.
