If you loved the movie, are an aficionado of the board game, or if you just enjoy the unfurling of a great whodunit - you’ll kill to be among the first to see the official stage adaptation of this pop culture favorite.
Based on the iconic 1985 Paramount movie adaptation and the classic Hasbro board game, CLUE is a hilarious farce-meets-murder mystery. Adapted from Jonathan Lynn’s screenplay (My Cousin Vinny, The BBC’s Yes Minister), with additional material by Hunter Foster and Eric Price, this live staging tells the shocking tale of six mysterious guests who attend an unusual dinner party hosted by Mr. Boddy, where murder and blackmail are both on the menu. When Boddy himself ends up murdered, all the guests become suspects, and together they must solve the mystery before the police arrive. A zany evening of slapstick, slamming doors and some of the funniest one-liners in movie history, CLUE will leave both cult-fans and newcomers in stitches.
Produced by Work Light Productions (Rent, Mamma Mia!, American Idiot, R&H’s Cinderella, Avenue Q) and Broadway’s The Araca Group (Urinetown, Disgraced, The Wedding Singer, Rock of Ages), the play is Directed by Tony®-nominee Hunter Foster (Urinetown) with Scenic Design by Tony®-nominee Anna Louizos (In the Heights).
