The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940
By John Bishop
Directed by Don McCoy
This wildly comedic romp pokes non-stop fun at show business and the corny thrillers of old Hollywood. The story revolves around a snow covered reunion of the cast of a recent Broadway flop during which a murderer went on a killing spree on the cast. The host tries to set up an environment that will lure the infamous "Stage Door Slasher" out of hiding and into custody. The tale unfolds in a Chappaqua, NY estate library, complete with secret passageways, sliding panels, and people who aren't what they seem to be.
