THE 2001-2002 NEIU STAGE CENTER THEATRE SEASON

The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940
   By John Bishop
April, 2002

Under the guise of a backer's audition, the creative team responsible for a recent Broadway flop (including three murders) come together at the home of a wealthy theatrical "angel."  As the composer, lyricist, actors and director prepare their performance for the audition, they become snow bound at the house and strange things begin to happen: miurders, disappearances, and even odd hour d' oeuvres.
