Sold out run of Murder! at The Strand extended for June 2018
Created by director and playwright Corey Bradberry and escape room designer Jeremy Ledbetter, this 75 minute interactive experience will invite patrons to take on the roles of audience members, witnesses to a crime, and ultimately investigators following clues, interacting with the actors, and examining the space to identify the culprit.
Patrons will be given the chance to explore many areas of the theatre not typically open to guests, making this an exciting opportunity to see 'behind the scenes' of the historic theatre.
"Murder! is truly a one-of-a-kind event," says Bradberry. "Influenced by theatre, escape room design, the murder mystery genre, and of course The Strand's unique architecture, we're creating a world with almost two dozen performers that spills off the stage and into the entire building. You can 'play' by yourself or as part of a larger group, and your journey becomes the story."
Tickets are $45 and are on sale now. Very limited tickets are available. This is an extended run of April's show and will not feature new material. This show involves exploring the theatre, so patrons are encouraged to wear attire comfortable for some walking.
