In this two-person musical, I play a detective, Joe Kinosian plays a dozen-plus suspects, and we both play the piano. Written by Joe Kinosian (music and book) and Kellen Blair (lyrics and book), it is 90 0f the funniest minutes you will ever spend in a theater!
We open at the Eureka Theatre, under the auspices of the 42nd Street Moon company.

Check out some reviews …
“Overett completely inhabits that character and pairs beautifully with Kinosian, never dropping the momentum or the spoofy, farcical tone of the piece.” – The SF Examiner
“A lovable foil … [Adam Overett] is a perfect straight man who is able to get his own share of laughs.” – The Troy Record

I’ve been selected to be a 2010-2011 Jonathan Larson Fellow at the Dramatists Guild! The Larson Fellowship is a yearlong workshop for musical theatre writers and playwrights, led by Lynn Ahrens & Stephen Flaherty (Tony-winning creators of RAGTIME, ONCE ON THIS ISLAND and many other shows), NYU’s Janet Neipris, and Susan Miller (ANYONE BUT ME). I’ve got several shows in the works, and I’m looking forward to working on them, meeting potential new collaborators, and learning from the best of the best!
