Albany, NY

  • “Brilliantly Hilarious! This bawdy, gutsy, old-fashioned comedy comes to life as two people play more than a dozen characters combined, play the piano beautifully, sing, dance, and pull every trick out of the trunk of comedy while solving a murder. If you want to laugh until you cry, see Murder for Two.”

Beautifully designed, magnificently acted, and flawlessly directed, Murder for Two is a show that I suggest you don’t miss.”
