When Varthur McArthur, the artistic director of a failing theater in Duluth, invites his troupe of disgruntled actors and collaborators to the first read of an “immersive murder mystery dinner party,” no one knew that he would be the victim. Or did they? Enter eager, determined, and untested Detective Case. After sequestering the guests into separate rooms (because, you know, social-distancing), she gets down to finding out whodunnit, uncovering secret affairs, life-long grudges, backstage drama, and a lot of musical theater song and dance.
A collaboration between more than 50 Broadway professionals all working together remotely, A Killer Party is not only a new musical, but represents a new type of musical. With a purchase of the series, you support these artists “on stage” and behind-the-scenes, while they provide laughter and levity during this time of new ways to create and support art. A portion of your purchase price will also support The Lensic.
This hilarious and irreverent send-up of the classic Murder Mystery features an all-star creative team that includes Jason Howland (Little Women, Music), Nathan Tysen (Amelie, Lyrics), Kait Kerrigan (Book), Marc Bruni (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, Direction), Bobby Pearce (Taboo, Costume Design), Billy Jay Stein (Grammy® winner, Music Producer) and HMS Media (Video Post-Production).
$12.99 — includes all nine episodes + an invitation to our special online event, “A Conversation with ‘A Killer Party’ Writers Kait Kerrigan (book) and Nathan Tysen (lyrics)” on August 25 at 8 pm.
