A ‘Murder’ous New Show Hits Circa ’21 Next Weekend

Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for the time of the year, but by the morning, it is one passenger fewer.

An American tycoon lies dead in his compartment, stabbed eight times, his door locked from the inside. Isolated and with a killer in their midst, the passengers rely on detective Hercule Poirot to identify the murderer — in case he or she decides to strike again. Ken Ludwig’s clever adaptation of the Agatha Christie classic boasts all the glamour, intrigue and suspense of Dame Agatha’s celebrated novel, with a healthy dose of humor to quicken the pace.

Directed by Cory Johnson, the star studded cast features Kimberly VanDerGinst, Tom Walljasper, Shelley Walljasper, Savannah Bay Strandin, Kyle DeFAuw among others!
