Actors’ Playhouse opening night provided loyal theatre goers with a delicious pre show buffet courtesy of Catering by Lovables and a laugh riot of a show, Murder for Two. This musical comedy directed by David Arisco was performed brilliantly by a cast of two: Martin Landry, who played the parts of numerous characters, and Mark Schenfisch, both of whom are also concert pianists among their many talents. This show will run through August 11. For info and tickets, visit www.actorsplayhouse.org.
