New England Premiere and Pre National Tour Engagement
CLUE: ON STAGE
August 21 - September 1, 2018
Adapted from the screenplay by: Jonathan Lynn; Additional material by Hunter Foster, Sandy Rustin and Eric Price.
If you loved the movie Clue, you’ll kill to be among the first audiences to see the new stage adaptation. Based on the iconic Paramount movie adaptation of the classic Hasbro board game, Clue: On Stage is a hilarious farce-meets-murder-mystery. This live staging tells the shocking tale of six mysterious guests who attend an unusual dinner party where murder and blackmail are both on the menu. An evening of slapstick, slamming doors, and some of the funniest one-liners in movie history, Clue: On Stage will leave both cult-fans and newcomers in stitches.
Age recommendation: Ten and up. (There is no official rating system for live theatre. We invite you to use your own judgment.)
Run Time: 1 hours and 35 minutes, no intermission.
Made possible with generous support by:
