Dial 'M' if You're Nasty

Murder and mayhem have made their way to the Albuquerque Little Theatre! This time it’s Dial M for Murder, ALT’s latest production, which is sure to send chills up the spines of la gente de la Duke City. You might remember the 1954 film thriller directed by Alfred Hitchcock. It starred Grace Kelly, Ray Milland and Robert Cummings, and featured one of the most manipulative villains around. The story premiered in 1952 as a BBC television play, and was then performed on a West End stage in June of the same year, moving to Broadway in October.

Written by Frederick Knott (of Wait Until Dark fame), Dial M for Murder features just one setting, the living room of Margo and Tony Wendice. A faded love affair, greed, deception, and a reversal of deadly misfortune come into play. The audience discovers that murder, indeed, has its consequences, but not until the absolute truth is revealed in a stunning climax.

Here’s what you need to know: Tickets are $22 for adults, $20 for seniors, and $18 for students. Tickets for children 12 and under cost just $10.00. Group discounts are available.
