In celebration of Agatha Christie’s The BBC Murders opening night, the Capitol Theatre will host a street fair that will transform the 400 block of Cleveland Street into a scene from 1940s era Britain. The street festival is free and open to the public with entertainment from 6:30 pm to 8 pm. The opening night performance on Tuesday, November 13 is sold out.
Lost during the London Blitz and post-war reconstruction, four rediscovered Agatha Christie gems from the BBC Mystery Series come to life for the first time on a Florida stage. Three Blind Mice was presented in 1947 in response to a request from Queen Mary for a new Christie mystery on the occasion of her 80th birthday. This classic was the inspiration for The Mousetrap, the world’s longest-running play. Yellow Iris, a musical set in a London cabaret, introduced the world to the now-beloved Inspector Hercule Poirot. This riveting mystery intersperses action with performances by the musicians and cabaret artists appearing at the restaurant where the murder is committed. Butter in a Lordly Dish takes its title from a passage from the book of Judges in the Bible and refers to the story of Jael, who killed Sisera by driving a nail through his head. Finally, Personal Call introduces the legendary character Inspector Narracott from the 1931 novel The Sittaford Mystery.
