With a playful wink at the work of author Agatha Christie and other renowned mystery writers, Something's Afoot is a madcap murder-mystery musical that first opened on Broadway in 1976. A popular production ever since, Something's Afoot finds a small group of people stranded in an isolated English country estate during -- what else? -- a thunderstorm. But when the power goes out, the bridge gets flooded and the butler -- who else? -- is killed in a freak explosion, the rest of the guests begin to die mysteriously one after the next. That leaves the remaining guests, and you, to figure out whodunit. Learn More
