Based on the iconic 1985 Paramount movie which was inspired by the classic Hasbro board game, Clue is a hilarious farce-meets-murder mystery. The tale begins at a remote mansion, where six mysterious guests assemble for an unusual dinner party where murder and blackmail are on the menu. When their host turns up dead, they all become suspects. Led by the Wadsworth - the butler, Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock and Colonel Mustard race to find the killer as the body count stacks up. Clue is the comedy whodunit that will leave both cult-fans and newcomers in stitches as they try to figure out…WHO did it, WHERE, and with WHAT!
The show is adapted from the original Jonathan Lynn screenplay, by Sandy Rustin (The Cottage, Rated P…For Parenthood) with additional material by Hunter Foster (Jasper in Deadland, Summer of ’42) and Eric Price (A Grand Night for Singing), having its premiere at Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope, PA in May of 2017. Clue features original underscoring by composer Michael Holland (Godspell), scenic design by Anna Louizos (School of Rock, Rodger + Hammerstein’s Cinderella), lighting design by Ryan O’Gara (After Midnight, Lady Day), and direction by Casey Hushion (Mean Girls, Aladdin).
