The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940
The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 is not your typical murder mystery. An eccentric heiress has invited a group of theatre people to her home on the pretense of holding a backer’s audition for a new musical. The creative team for this new project were also involved in a recent Broadway flop that closed abruptly when three of its showgirls were mysteriously murdered. As the mayhem unfolds, it’s not long before bodies are dropping once again and everyone’s a suspect. This Agatha Christie meets Clue whodunit parody features blizzard conditions, secret passageways, musical snippets, and plenty of slapstick comedy.
Will the mystery of the “Stage Door Slasher” be untangled before it’s too late?

The inimitable Thomas "Fats" Waller rose to international fame during the Golden Age of the Cotton Club and that jumpin' new beat, swing music. Although not quite a biography, Ain't Misbehavin' evokes the delightful humor and infectious energy of this American original as a versatile cast struts, strums and sings the songs that he made famous in a career that ranged from uptown clubs to downtown Tin Pan Alley. The intoxicating music of Fats Waller will delight and energize audiences as well as provide great insight into a vibrant time in American history and music.
