City Lights Theater Company
Full disclosure: “Whodunit” is about to be revealed. It happened at City Lights Theatre Company (and will continue happening until March 6). It was done with the 1951 play script of The Hollow by Dame Agatha Christie, the globally famed author of the third-most books in publication behind only Shakespeare and the Bible. The guilty parties are a stellar cast of twelve playing delightfully quirky and sometimes suspicious characters under the watchful eyes of a director (Doll Piccotto) who knows how to pace a three-hour (one intermission) mystery where there is never a dull moment and where there are many laughs to be had even as there is a bloody murder to be solved. The result is far from being a crime but instead is an evening of intrigue, comedy, and even romance.
For my full review, please continue to TalkinBroadway.
