Looking for a killer deal on train travel? Look no further than the Sutter Street Theatre in Folsom (717 Sutter St.) this month as the venue stages Agatha Christie’s “Murder on the Orient Express.”
Showtimes are at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and at 4:30 p.m. Sundays. Tickets, available online, are $17 to $26.
Sutter Street Theatre describes the classic whodunnit, which was adapted from Dame Agatha’s 1934 novel by Ken Ludwig, and is directed by Connie Mockenhaupt:
“Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for the time of the year, but by the morning it is one passenger fewer. An American tycoon lies dead in his compartment, stabbed eight times, his door locked from the inside. Isolated and with a killer in their midst, the passengers rely on detective Hercule Poirot to identify the murderer—in case he or she decides to strike again.”
Come along for the ride, if you dare!
Sutter Street’s next offering is “Harvey,” from April 14-May 13.
The whimsical tale is about “a perfect gentleman, Elwood P. Dowd, and his best friend, Harvey—a pooka, who is a 6-foot tall, invisible rabbit. When Elwood begins introducing Harvey around town, his embarrassed sister, Veta Louise, and her daughter, Myrtle Mae, determine to commit Elwood to a sanitarium. A mistake is made and Veta is committed rather than Elwood! Eventually, the mistake is realized, and a frantic search begins for Elwood.”
