    Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express

    November 22, 2019 – December 22, 2019

     

    Just after midnight, a snow storm stops the luxurious Orient Express in its tracks. The train is filled with eccentric passengers, suddenly minus one – an American tycoon lies dead in his compartment, his door locked from the inside. With a car full of suspects – each with an alibi – it’s the perfect mystery for none other than famed detective Hercule Poirot, n’est-ce pas?   Ride the rails through this tangled tale, where film noir atmosphere mixes with art deco elegance, as the world’s most clever sleuth uncovers clue after clue until arriving at the ultimate, shocking reveal.

    Performed in a witty new adaption by Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor) commissoned by the Agatha Christie estate.

    Running time is approximately 2 hours with one intermission.
