NOV 6, 2010 – MURDER FOR TWO opens in San Francisco!

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.

Info and tickets here!

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
