To make a long story short (too late!), Clue—the classic board-game-turned-movie—now turns into a crowd-pleasing on-stage farce at The Ringwald Theatre. Jonathan Lynn, director and screenwriter of 1985’s cult classic comedy Clue, has personally crafted this stage adaptation (with additional material by Hunter Foster, Eric Price, and Sandy Rustin) so the clever and quotable wordplay familiar to generations of movie fans remains largely intact—with a few brand-new twists and tricks.
On a dark and stormy night, six colorful guests—plus a butler, a maid and a cook—assemble for a dinner party at the home of Mr. Boddy. Once the champagne pops, the blackmail drops, and Mr. Boddy’s body turns up dead, it’s clear that no one is safe. Soon the victims pile up and the guests race to find who did it, where, and with what.
Directed by , Clue features a hilarious ensemble cast of Ringwald favorites and newcomers, including . The design team features Patrizia Makohon (set), Brandy Joe Plambeck (lights and sound), Katy Schoetzow (props), Cal Schwartz (costumes) and Molly Zaleski (choreography).
