Murder mystery comedy comes to Folsom

ENT_Playbill WEB

FOLSOM —  In John Bishop’s hilarious “Musical Comedy Murders of 1940” a creative team responsible for a recent Broadway flop (in which three chorus girls were murdered by the mysterious “Stage Door Slasher”) assemble for a backer’s audition of their new show at the Westchester estate of a wealthy “angel.”

The house is replete with sliding panels, secret passageways and a German maid who is apparently four different people-all of which figure diabolically in the comic mayhem which follow when the infamous “Slasher” makes his reappearance and strikes again-and again.

As the composer, lyricist, actors and director prepare their performance, and a blizzard cuts off any possible retreat, bodies start to drop in plain sight, knives spring out of nowhere, masked figures drag their victims behind swiveling bookcases and accusing fingers point in all directions.

Come to Sutter Street Theatre and find out “who done it!”
