If you’ve checked the theater scene and can’t decide what to see in Chicago next, then perhaps heading to Navy Pier and taking in “Murder for Two”—a mix of an Agatha Christie mystery, an old-fashioned musical comedy and a modern panache—playing now at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater will do the trick! This whodunit comes with a killer twist: one actor investigates the crime, the other plays all 13 suspects, and they both play the piano!
Following the murder of a well-known novelist, Officer Marcus Moscowicz is thrown into a houseful of eccentric and cunning characters, including a wife who is more concerned about stolen ice cream than her murdered husband and a twelve-member boys’ choir that happens to be nine members short. Interesting right?
When it comes to a hilarious display of wit and musical showmanship, this madcap musical mystery will tickle the ivories and your funny bone.
