    Everyone is a suspect!  In this hilarious musical mystery, one actor plays the detective and one actor plays all the suspects  . . . and they both play the piano! This witty, winking homage to old-fashioned closed-room murder mysteries is a delirious gift for two multi-talented actors, and its blend of music and mayhem will be a delicious treat for the holidays.
