2nd Star Productions presents... THE MUSICAL COMEDY MURDERS OF 1940 February 9 - 24, 2018 By John Bishop Directed by Jane Wingard Produced by Victoria Rose Brown Assistant Directed by Steve Mangum When the creative team responsible for a recent Broadway flop assemble for a backer’s audition for a new musical on a suburban estate, things turn deadly with plenty of confusing murders and knotty plots to unravel in John Bishop’s comedic thriller.
