MEET THE CURATOR
“I’ve loved Agatha Christie’s The Murder Of Roger Ackroyd since I first read it as a teenager and adapting it for the stage has been a labor of love. I’m overjoyed that we have assembled this truly remarkable and celebrated cast of Broadway veterans and Playhouse favorites for a night filled with mystery, laughter and a few good thrills. It’s going to be a killer reading with Script in Hand at the Playhouse!""Mark Shanahan
