Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express
Adapted for the Stage by Ken Ludwig
PTC kicks off its 62nd season with the spellbinding excitement and intrigue of one of Agatha Christie’s greatest whodunits. 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.
BroadwayWorld calls Ken Ludwig’s adaptation “A love letter to the original material, with a swift moving script…Everything you could want – broadly drawn characters, exotic settings, and a spectacular murder with no shortage of suspects.” All aboard!
