Playhouse presents “Getting Away with Murder”
May 3 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM| $25
The Playhouse at Museum Village begins its 24th season with “Getting Away with Murder”, a suspense thriller written by George Furth and Stephen Sondheim. Performances are scheduled for May 3rd, 4th, 9th, 10th, 11th 17th, & 18th at 8 pm, and on Sundays, May 5th and May 19th at 3 pm. Tickets to individual performances are $25 each, which includes dessert at intermission consisting of apple pie, ice cream, cheese, iced tea and coffee. Group rates are available and reservations are suggested.
This non-musical theatre piece is a thriller that puts seven patients of a psychiatrist together for a session on the top floor of an apartment building, with the doctor permanently unavailable. The play is propelled by a series of twists and turns and red herrings, along with some hold-your-breath shocks, all culminating in an explosive surprise ending. Act One is a “whodunit” and by its end the audience knows the murderer. Act Two becomes a suspense play… will the characters figure it out? Will someone actually be “getting away with murder?”
