Murder at Cafe Noir

By David Landau

Directed by Jill Nadeau

“Murder at Cafe Noir” is one of the most popular mystery shows in the country and has had weekly productions coast to coast since its premiere in 1989. It is a stylized forties detective story featuring Rick Archer, P.I. Rick is out to find a curvaceous runaway on the forgotten island of Mustique, a place stuck in a black and white era. The owner of the Cafe Noir has washed ashore, murdered, and Rick's quarry was the last person seen with him. He employs his hard boiled talents to find the killer. Was it the French madame and club manager, the voodoo priestess, the shyster British attorney, the black marketeer or the femme fatale? The audience votes twice on what they want Rick to do next and these decisions change the flow of this comic tribute to the Bogart era.There are three musical numbers.
