Featuring an assorted group of travelers who find themselves thrown together on a Middle Eastern expedition, the "Queen of Crime" offers a unique take on the classic murder mystery, where characters' motivations are suspect and relationships may not be what they seem.
See it if Gallery's turn with Christie proves to be quite entertaining & well handled. Actors have nice grasp of stylized material Excellent costumes
Don't see it if Play's a bit dated both in attitude & mechanics; one can see Christie setting up "all her ducks in a row" but Cuskern keeps the pacing up
See it if Great eerie music and timely lighting. Talk-back a winner Dominic Cuskern great directing. 9 accents perfect. A "lift" on the stage MORE

Don't see it if you’re not a fan of Agatha Christie, or can’t stand the thought of taking yourself to Brooklyn for a show.
See it if Death occurs during dysfunctional family vacation to the Middle East. Plenty of clues and red herrings. Brooklyn local theatre.
Don't see it if You don’t like Who Done Its. A train ride to Brooklyn is too far. You think Agatha Christie is formulaic and old fashioned.

Don't see it if You can't stand long setups. The murder doesn't happen until well into Act 2, so the whole murder mystery portion is very rushed.
See it if You like community/regional theatre, however, with on-par acting. It was quite good, some accent enunciation issues here and there, but,
Don't see it if Great use of space. Great acting. Just melodramatic enough. Agatha would've been proud. Never been to this venue before, but, I'd go again.

See it if you like mysteries & don't mind Equity & amateur performers sharing the stage (which brings down the general level of professionalism).
