Looking for a fun, relaxing and entertaining way to wind down from a hard-days work? Arizona Theatre Company may have the answer with Theatre in the Park at Zazu Pannee, 1502 E. Osborn Road, a free 30-minute performance of selections from the zany musical comedy whodunit, Murder for Two, on Wednesday, Jan. 7, 2015.
Theatre in the Park begins at 5:30 p.m. with a happy hour selection of wine, appetizers and soft drinks. The performance featuring composer Joe Kinsosian and his on-stage partner Ian Lowe begins at 6:30.
There is no charge for the performance, but reservations are preferred by calling Gary Edwards at (602) 509-0305. Street parking is adjacent to the United Way parking lot.
Kinosian and Lowe will offer a laugh-out-loud glimpse of the musical comedy whodunit with the classic feel of a murder mystery and a contemporary homage to vintage comedy – with some cheeky references to murder mysteries that have come before thrown in.
Murder for Two channels composer Kinosian’s and lyricist Kellen Blair’s love for both Agatha Christie and the Marx Brothers into a zany 90-minute blend of classical musical comedy and madcap mystery with killer laughs and two performers playing 13 roles – and the piano. The New York Times called Murder for Two “Ingenious! A snazzy double-act that spins out a comic mystery animated by funny, deftly turned songs.”
