“The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940,” opening tonight at the Wade James Theatre, is not your typical murder mystery. Sure, the show starts off with a heinous murder by an unknown assailant. But then there are lots of hilarious jokes and funny one-liners. (And yes, there is a song.) Soon the guests arrive and you’ll discover this isn’t your average party. All that, and a sidekick who turns out to be a hero! This Driftwood Players’ production is entertainment at its best. It will keep you laughing and will make you smile all the way home.
Directed by Martin J. Mackenzie, “The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940” will be performed Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m., now through Sept. 26. (Sept. 17 is unavailable due to a full house booking.) An ASL interpreted performance will be Sunday, Sept. 19 at 2 p.m.
Tickets are $23 for general and $20 for juniors/seniors/military (18 and under/60 and over).
