Murder for Two's original Second Stage Theatre cast member Jeff Blumenkrantz will return to the production on March 17 to reprise his role of The Suspects. Blumenkrantz, who took a break from the musical comedy to appear in Sweeney Todd at New York Philharmonic, will take over for composer Joe Kinosian, who joined the cast on January 20.

Murder for Two also stars Brett Ryback as the investigator of a crime. The show originally opened at the McGinn/Cazale Theatre on July 10 and ran through July 25. The off-Broadway remount officially opened at New World Stages on November 6.

With a book and music by Kinosian and book and lyrics by Blair, Murder for Two features scenic design by Beowulf Boritt, costume design by Andrea Lauer, lighting design by Jason Lyons, sound design by Jill B.C. DuBoff, and choreography by Wendy Seyb.

Murder for Two recently announced a spring concert series, Murderous Musical Mondays, taking place every other Monday at New World Stages following the 7pm performance. The series is set to launch on March 24 with composer Ryan Scott Oliver.
