Who doesn't love a good old-fashioned whodunnit? See if you can find the murderer of the widow Maureen Lyon from among a group of vacationers, each of whom has secrets. In classic Christie fashion, there are plenty of red herrings and shocking surprises that will keep you guessing until the final twist. Don't miss the first New York production of The Mousetrap in more than 60 years, and see why London audiences have raved about the show since 1952, calling it "sensational" (London Theatre) and "a walking, talking piece of theatre history" (Time Out).
Christie based elements of The Mousetrap on the real-life case of a man accused of murdering his parents, who abused him as a boy. She first premiered the show as a radio play before adapting it as a short story, and then for the stage. The short story has yet to be published in the U.K.; it cannot do so as long as The Mousetrap is running in London.
And it shows no signs of slowing down. The Mousetrap opened in 1952 and has played over 29,000 performances to more than 10 million people. The only break in its record-setting run was from March 2020 to May 2021 due to the pandemic.
The 2023 Broadway premiere is the second production of The Mousetrap in New York. The play ran off Broadway from November 1960 to April 1961. The Mousetrap on Broadway was announced on the play's 70th London anniversary, on November 25, 2022.
