Arsenic and Old Lace (1966)
“Let’s not exaggerate. At some time there may have been a funnier murder charade, but the supposition is purely academic”. Thus Brooks Atkinson wrote in his original 1941 review. And this hilarious comedy kept New Howling for three and a half years! In line with its policy of each year presenting a revival of an outstanding American play from the past, A Contemporary Theatre offers this Kesselring classic.
