Murder for Two

Professional theater companies have struggled fiscally the past several years, and one sign of that is all the plays with itty-bitty casts that they’ve been presenting. We sentimentally wish that more actors were getting paid, but until that happy day, we’ll enjoy the tours de force on display in Murder for Two, a nostalgic and hysterical musical comedy mystery in which one actor plays a police officer, another plays the 12 suspects in a murder, and both play the piano. Co-creator Joe Kinosian co-stars in Arizona Theatre Company’s production, whose Phoenix run opens Wednesday, December 31, at 7:30 p.m. It continues through Sunday, January 18, 2015, at 222 East Monroe Street.
