About this show

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. No performance Thanksgiving, Thursday, November 25th.
