Please join celebrated playwright Ken Ludwig (A Comedy of Tenors, 2015) and McCarter Theatre Artistic Director and Resident Playwright Emily Mann for a moderated discussion about their artistic partnership and adventure in bringing Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express to the stage—for the very first time ever…anywhere! The adapter and director, who will be in the midst of rehearsals for this world-premiere production, will share information about this unique opportunity to adapt and produce the Christie detective novel featuring the beloved Belgian Hercule Poirot. They will also provide details on both the show’s casting and its sumptuous design—the collaboration of an all Tony Award-winning design team.
The event will take place from 7:00 – 8:30pm in the Princeton Public Library’s Community Room (on the first floor adjacent to the Library Café). The Princeton Public Library is located at 65 Witherspoon Street, Princeton, NJ.
No RSVP or ticket is required to attend the discussion; it is free and open to the public.
