“Ira Levin’s ingeniously crafted play brings the scares and surprises coming until the final curtain,” said director Evan Hoffmann, producing artistic director of the theater. “It’s a murder-mystery thriller and we had yet to do something like this.”

“Everyone is so up close and involved in the show, so I thought it was a cool use of our space,” he said. “When you put the audience this close to the action in a murder mystery, it really becomes very immersive. It can’t be passive because people are being murdered five-feet away from them and you don’t know who the murderer might be. There’s a heightened sense of urgency and excitement.”
