We were able to get in touch with the show's director, Brian Rassler, to learn more about what we can expect, as well as where to buy tickets.
Tell us a little bit about the upcoming show “Art of Murder" What is the overall plot?
Their college-educated Irish maid (played by Lesi Jonap) just wants to get away from Jack’s wandering hands for the evening. Throughout the evening, Jack is not the only one to show his psychotic behavior, which is always occurring, followed by clandestine discussions of murder and betrayal, lust, greed, joy, and anger.
Overall, it is a very fun show to watch with some unexpected reversals and outcomes.
What is the cast/director most excited about for this show?
Andy, my wife, and I had been trying to convince my good friend Chuck to try out for a show for over 20 years and now he is in his third or fourth full-length show, including many 10-minute shows in the last 3 years. It appears Chuck has gotten the acting bug and I don’t see him getting cured anytime soon.
I met Lesi 3 or 4 years ago and she and I have been husband and wife in a couple of shows and those marriages have been almost as dysfunctional as the marriage in ‘Art of Murder.’ However, I hope Lesi doesn’t have any of the plans for me that the couple in ‘Art of Murder’ have for each other.
Danielle is a newcomer to Old Courthouse Theatre and to my theatrical life. She had a great audition for this show and I am very happy that she fits into this show so well. Danielle is sweet and devilish, just like her character Annie in the show, minus the diabolical side.
This whole cast has been very fun to work with and they all are bringing a lot of exciting and creative things to their performance.
How can someone get tickets?
Is there anything else we should know?
The performances are 8:00 pm Friday & Saturday, October 28 & 29, and 2:30 pmSunday, October 30. Come and see it more than once to see if you catch all the clues leading up to the twist ending.
