For some women, a home, furniture, clothing and five watches equals
connubial bliss, but not for Arlene Miller, whose husband Paul will buy
her anything. Searching for self-fulfillment in the guise of sexual
passion, Arlene discovers the couple's dentist, Mitchell Lovell. But
intractable Paul won't agree to a divorce, so Arlene and Mitchell plot
his murder. But luckily for Paul, the two are hapless when it comes to
vile deeds. So he returns to aid Arlene when she wants to kill Mitchell
for being untrue. The antics continue as the two men gang up on fickle
Arlene in the second act.
There's a laugh a minute in Ron Clark and Sam Bobrick's screwball comedy, Murder at the Howard Johnsons as the tangled
triangle careens on its roller coaster track indicting each character
along its path. The pressure provides each character opportunities to
spout pithy witticisms and ironies of life and love that are sure to
make any audience chuckle.
