Murder for Two Channels A Classic Mystery Feel with a Musical Flair
Joe Kinosian and Kellen Blair may not be as well-known as the legendary Agatha Christie in the mystery world, but their musical Murder for Two provides the same twists and turns, enigmatic clues, and thrilling conclusion. An element that Kinosian and Blair provide that Christie did not? Setting the entire mystery to music.
Officer Marcus Moscowicz dreams of being a detective and knows that he can solve the crime, but with so many suspects, it may be more difficult than he anticipated. Greenbrier Valley Theatre will welcome two new faces to the stage as Trace Pool portrays Moscowicz opposite Ben Miller playing numerous eccentric suspects. The final nail in the coffin – both Pool and Miller play the piano themselves throughout the entire show.
Newcomer Dana Iannuzzi will provide direction for the musical mystery. The production will feature scenic design completed by Jessica Cancino, costume design by Jenna Fawn Brown, and lighting design by E. Tonry Lathroum. Elizabeth Salisch serves as the Production Stage Manager and Richard Crowell as Production Manager.
“I think that mysteries have always been a really popular genre for entertainment. Things from the zany antics of Tim Curry in ‘Clue’ to the more modern day versions like ‘Knives Out.’ Add a pair of dueling pianists and what is not to love during the Halloween season?” said Iannuzzi.
