You are one of a group of thrill-seeking tourists gathered for a Halloween night ghost tour. You huddle close together as the howling wind swirls dead leaves around the five historic houses in the square. Four of them are guaranteed to be haunted by murder victims from decades past; the fifth house is where the tour starts and costumed actors re-enact the crimes that created the ghosts.
The Tour Guide leads you up the dim creaking staircase and turns you loose to explore the upper floor. Screams punctuate the silence as the actors jump out of their hiding places to portray murderers and victims. Suddenly, one more scream is heard and a heavy weight tumbles down the stairs. When the Security Guard turns on the lights, you can see the lifeless body of the Tour Guide sprawled on the lower landing.
Somebody has pushed her—but who? And why?

Broadway Murder Mysteries, where YOU are the show! Broadway Murder Mysteries was created in March of 2020 when many Broadway performers, writers, and talent were out of work. The Broadway shut down had a huge impact on the theater community, and Broadway Murder Mysteries was created to give jobs to out of work talent, while creating something inherently theatrical that theater and mystery fans would love.
