Nothing says “Season’s Greetings” like holiday music, Sugarplum fairies, and murder. It's opening night for Balance Ballet Company's production of The Nutcracker, and something seriously unbalanced is going down. The star has been killed, moments before the curtain was set to rise. Was it Demi Pointe, the ambitious understudy? Could it have been Pierre Owet, the perfectionist director? Did the overworked PA, Tan Due, finally snap? Only you can solve the case, save the performance, and make sure the holiday season gets off on the right foot!

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.
