A new adaptation of Hercule Poirot's most famous case!
Agatha Christie's fiendish tale of murder and skulduggery comes to the McCarter Theatre Center in a brand new adaptation by Ken Ludwig. Starring as the inimitable Hercule Poirot is English stage and screen star Allan Corduner (Florence Foster Jenkins, Homeland), and he's joined in the cast by Tony winner Max Von Essen (An American in Paris) and Broadway alum Alexandra Silber (Fiddler on the Roof).
First published in 1934, Murder on the Orient Express is one of Christie's most famous works, and has been adapted numerous times for the big and small screen, with a new Kenneth Branagh movie version also currently in the works. Taking place almost entirely within the confines of the famous Orient Express as it winds its way from from Istanbul to Paris, the mystery is set in motion when an American businessman is brutally stabbed. Luckily, the world renowned detective Hercule Poirot is also on board, and sets about discovering the killer's identity. But as Poirot discovers, nearly everyone on board the train seems to have a motive...
