Description

Can you hear the drums Fernando? If you're all alone when the pretty birds have flown then take a chance on 27 Short Plays About Being Murdered in a Hotel by ABBA by William M. Razavi. The Swedish pop sensation ABBA is reunited in absurd form as they embark on a world tour that you will never forget, if you survive it. Detectives Asta and Greta follow in the wake of the mysterious crime spree trying to make sense of it all. With sly cinematic references ranging from Ingmar Bergman to several other filmmakers other than Ingmar Bergman, 27 Short Plays About Being Murdered in a Hotel by ABBA lives up to its name...insofar as the play consists of 27 short plays that are in some way about being murdered in a hotel...by ABBA. Don't miss the play that has more music than a play without music and surprisingly less music than a musical about playing competitive backgammon in Mumbai. "Mamma Mia! What a play!" - Estimated reaction of someone who might have seen the play. "I'm sending out an SOS for help getting up from my seat. Seriously, I can't get up." - Possible response of an audience member who wants to see the play again.show more
