Seventy years into its West End run, Agatha Christie's thriller The Mousetrap will transfer to New York, making its Broadway premiere in 2023.

Complete details about this newly announced Broadway production are minimal: The Mousetrap will be lead produced by Adam Spiegel (who stewards the West End production) and Kevin McCollu, and it will feature both a recreation of Anthony Holland's set (including a mantelpiece clock which remains the only surviving piece of the original set), as well as a wind machine from the U.K. staging that will be shipped across the Atlantic. It will be performed by an American company.

The Mousetrap premiered in 1952 and has played 28,915 performances in London since. It has been seen by over 10 million people.

The planned Broadway run will feature an American company performing the classic whodunit, which finds a group of seven strangers snowed in at a remote country retreat, only to discover, when a police detective arrives, that a killer is in their midst.
