Murder for Two (NYC)

News Story

Monday just got murderous and musical as Pace Performing Arts students join Off-Broadway’s Murder for Two for one night on April 21.

On select Monday nights, Off-Broadway's Murder for Two presents Murderous Musical Mondays, featuring free performances from special guests with the purchase of a ticket to that evening’s show.

On Monday, April 21, those special guests will be Pace Performing Arts students as Murderous Musical Mondays hosts the Pace New Musicals Writers’ Room, curated by Ryan Scott Oliver, a lecturer in the BFA Musical Theater program.

The killer concert will feature composers and lyricists including:

Aaron Albert and Katy Rea
Jamen Nanthakumar and Liana Wright-Mark
Kailey Marshall
Ian Fairlee
John-Michael Lyles and David Gomez

Additional performers include Stephen Christopher Anthony (The Book of Mormon), Charles Barksdale (Sister Act), Ally Bonino, Melanie Brook (Who is Melanie Brook at 54 Below), Lauren Chapman (Kinky Boots), Max Chernin, Sarah Cline, Brandon Contreras ’12 (In the Heights), Anthony Crouchelli (The Adventures of Tom Sawyer), Laura Dreyfuss (Once), Jason Gotay (Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark), Bonnie Milligan (Jasper In Deadland), Jillian Mueller (Flashdance), Jon-Michael Reese (The Book of Mormon), Taylor Shubert, and Noah Zachary (Dear Edwina).

Members of the Pace Community can purchase tickets for $39.50 (Regular $87) and student rush tickets are available at the box office for $27. Admission to the Pace Performing Arts musical after show is free with the purchase of a ticket to Murder for Two on April 21!

Murder for Two is a hilarious musical murder mystery with a twist: one actor investigates the crime, the other plays all of the suspects, and they both play the piano, resulting in the perfect blend of music, mayhem, and murder. And if you don’t believe us, The New York Times has called it “INGENIOUS!  A snazzy double-act that spins out a comic mystery animated by funny, deftly turned songs.”

You can purchase your tickets online, by phone, or in person, and enter/mention the code MRPIANO214
