“The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940” at Players Theater Company

“The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940”
by John Bishop

An ingenious and wildly comic romp which enjoyed a long and critically hailed run both on and off-Broadway. Poking antic fun at the more ridiculous aspects of "show biz" and the corny thrillers of Hollywood's heyday, the play is a non-stop barrage of laughter as those assembled (or at least those who aren't killed off) untangle the mystery of the "Stage Door Slasher."
