A musical in the key of murder!
“Terrific! Hilarious! Dynamic! An unabashedly histrionic romp with plenty of laughs, a fair share of romance and a welcome abundance of drollery.” –The Los Angeles Times

MARGATE, FL: Stage Door Theatre will present the darkly comedic musical, No Way to Treat a Lady beginning April 14th. The production will run through May 28th in the popular Margate venue’s Theatre 2.
A blend of devilish humor, romance, murder, and music, No Way to Treat a Lady features a publicity crazed actor turned serial killer, and the detective who pursues him: Actor Christopher “Kit” Gill, and Detective Morris Brummell have a lot in common – both dream of being headliners in the New York Times, and both are contending with difficult and overbearing mothers. Gill’s mother issues lead to murder, and Brummell’s to struggles to find independence, love, and of course, a murderer.
The production, directed by Peter J. Loewy, will feature James Hansen as Kit Gill and Dustin Cunningham as Morris Brummell. Andrea Arvanigian and Kimberly Abrams round out the cast.
“It’s a fun, funny, and clever show,” Loewy says. “It has a weirdly likeable homicidal maniac, a loveable if somewhat lost hero, and an interesting take on the relationship between sons and their mothers. And the score is pure Broadway musical comedy.”
Playwright, composer, lyricist Douglas J. Cohen is the recipient of the Fred Ebb Award for Musical Theatre Songwriting, two Richard Rodgers Awards, a Jonathan Larson Grant, the Gilman & Gonzalez-Falla Theatre Foundation Award, and the inaugural Noel Coward Prize.
No Way to Treat a Lady will run from April 14 – May 28 at Stage Door Theatre. The theatre is located at 8036 Sample Road, in Margate.
