Whodunit? Detective Hercule Poirot is determined to find out. Ten passengers board the luxurious Orient Express, but after the train unexpectedly stops in the isolated, snow-swept mountains, only nine of them are still alive. A man has been murdered in his room overnight, and suddenly every passenger becomes a suspect. Tensions rise as Poirot searches for the killer in their midst who just may strike again.
This version of the story has been adapted from Agatha Christie’s classic by Tony-nominated playwright Ken Ludwig. Bare Stage’s production of Ludwig’s stage adaptation promises fans of the mystery classic the same suspenseful, thrilling ride. (Lend Me a Tenor, Crazy for You). It will take you on a mind-bending journey of plot twists, turns, and thrills.
Broadway World referred to Ken Ludwig’s adaptation as “A love letter to the original material…Everything you could want - broadly drawn characters, exotic settings, and a spectacular murder with no shortage of suspects.”
Directed by veteran Roseann Wilshere, the cast features John Ward as Hercule Poirot, along with Rosann Balbontin, Greg Custer, Mark Donaldson, Linda Freeman, Pam Pettus, Florette Schnelle, Ken Yakiwchuk and Tony Wilshere.
