ABOUT THE SHOW: AGATHA CHRISTIE’S MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS
Ken Ludwig’s clever adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Murder On The Orient Express boasts all the glamour, intrigue and suspense of her celebrated novel, with a healthy dose of humor. Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for the time of the year, but by the morning it is one passenger fewer. An American tycoon lies dead in his compartment, stabbed eight times, his door locked from the inside. Isolated and with a killer in their midst, the passengers rely on detective Hercule Poirot to identify the murderer – in case they decide to strike again. RATED: PG-13 for some adult themes and mild violence.
