Los Alamos Art Council’s Brown Bag Performance Series presents a scene from Los Alamos Little Theater’s “Murdered to Death” at noon Wednesday, Jan.7 in the Pajarito Room of Fuller Lodge.
The play is directed by Patrick Webb and produced by Laurie Tomlinson. The play opens Jan. 16.
“Murdered to Death” is Peter Gordon’s hilarious spoof of the best Agatha Christie traditions, with an assembled cast of characters guaranteed to delight: Bunting the butler, an English Colonel with the prerequisite stiff upper lip, a shady French art dealer and his moll, bumbling local inspectors and a well-meaning local sleuth who seems to attract murder – they’re all here, and all caught up in the side-splitting antics, which follow the mysterious death of the owner of a country manor house.
But will the murderer be unmasked before everyone else has met their doom, or will audiences die laughing first?
Following the “Murder by Death” scene will be “Love in the Coldest Season,” a winter recital by students of Alicia Solomon with solos and duets of love and loss from art song, opera, musical theater and modern popular music.
