The off-Broadway musical comedy Murder for Two has extended its run at New World Stages once again. The production will now close on Sunday, July 6, after a previous 10-week extension through March 16.

With a book and score by Joe Kinosian and Kellen Blair, the zany murder mystery musical is directed by Scott Schwartz and stars Brett Ryback as Marcus, a policeman itching to be a detective, and Kinosian as all of the suspects in a case that can elevate Marcus to the position he so desires.

Murder for Two officially opened at New World Stages on November 6, after a run at Second Stage Uptown in the summer of 2013. The production 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.
