Getting Away with Murder is more fun than a roomful of Agatha Christies.” —Daily News

Longtime musical theatre collaborators Stephen Sondheim and George Furth, who together created the landmark musical Company, have joined forces again to create a compellingly original thriller—Mr. Sondheim’s first nonmusical play. Getting Away with Murder unfolds on a stormy night on Manhattan’s Upper West Side at a group therapy session. The patients arrive only to find that their faithful, Pulitzer Prize-winning psychiatrist is missing. What unfolds is a classic whodunit in the tradition of Sleuth and The Mousetrap that harkens back to Sondheim’s screenplay collaboration with Anthony Perkins on the cult film The Last of Sheila. Getting Away with Murder, originally produced at San Diego’s Old Globe Theatre, was produced on Broadway in 1996.

Review:

From the creators of the musicals Company and Merrily We Roll Along comes this non-musical murder mystery that played briefly in San Diego and New York in 1995-96. In addition to his many Tony- (and even Pulitzer-) winning musicals, Stephen Sondheim is known as a devotee of intricate puzzles. George Furth is known for bitingly witty dialog. The play tells what happens when members of a group therapy circle arrive to find their therapist murdered and evidence that one of them did it. They must work through their neuroses and discover the killer before, one by one, all of them are bumped off. Even the secondary efforts of the greats are worth analyzing, and now readers will have a chance to do what few theatergoers got to.
