About The Show

Whodunits are a favorite and this one keeps the audience guessing with twists, turns, and red herrings. Set in December 1940 in a mansion somewhere in New York State, a wealthy theatre supporter has invited guests to dine. The show people asked to perform believe they are there to convince her to back their show. However, an unsolved set of murders surrounds the chosen few. A police detective is also among the guests. He wants to solve the mystery. A murder occurs once the party gets started add a snow storm then a power failure and mishaps run amuck along with potential killers.

The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 is presented by special arrangement with Broadway Licensing, LLC, servicing the Dramatists Play Service collection.
