“Dial “M” for Murder”
The Group Rep at the Lonny Chapman Theatre presents Frederick Knott’s “Dial “M” for Murder,” directed by Bruce Kimmel and produced by Mannette Antill for the Group Rep. In this mystery thriller play that inspired Hitchcock’s suspense classic, a cunning man marries a wealthy woman for her money and plans to murder her to get her fortune. He devises a perfect murder, blackmails a criminal and arranges a brilliant alibi. To say more about a twisty and surprising thriller simply wouldn't be sporting, would it?
What critics have said about the play about the play:
"…original and remarkably good theatre-quiet in style but tingling with excitement underneath." –The New York Times
"It's a holiday for the whodunit fans, and…it couldn't be more welcome." - NY Herald-Tribune
Dial “M” for Murder had a highly successful run on Broadway.
