Solve-Along-A-Murder-She-Wrote
December 2019 Newsletter

It's been an incredible year. What started as a zany idea has become a cult success (if I do say so myself!) with terrific reviews and an Australian tour. I'm delighted to announce new shows in this newsletter, and look forward to having regular epiphanies with you all in 2020.

2019 YEAR IN REVIEW
Words cannot describe how amazing the first full year of Solve-Along-A-Murder-She-Wrote has been. We performed 40 shows, celebrating 9 episodes, in Bath, Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Hastings, London, Nottingham and Southampton, and toured Australia to Brisbane, Perth and Sydney. Best of all I've met some incredible fangelas who've made my crazy idea a reality. Thank you so much everyone, and I look forward to seeing you all again in 2020. 
FAB REVIEW IN BRISTOL 24/7
We had a blast performing at the Cube Cinema in Bristol for the first time this month - the venue even provided themed bunting and souvenir badges! We were even more delighted to receive an amazing review from Bristol 24/7. Tickets go on sale SOON for our next event at the Cube (21 Feb). 
RETURN TO THE STAGE DOOR
So delighted to be returning to the gorgeous Stage Door in Southampton, with the classic episode "Broadway Malady". This adorable venue has appropriately theatrical decor and a warm, cozy atmosphere. Looking forward to seeing you again on Saturday 11 January (tickets are half sold-out so book soon!).
MURDER SHE KNOWS BEER!
A Belgian friend who is an expert in craft beer has alerted me to a delightful new creation - an India Pale Ale brewed in Brussels called "Murder She Knows"! The label name-checks a number of classic episodes, including "Murder Takes the Bus" and "Lovers and Other Killers" and he's kept my a bottle for my next trip to the Continent. I'll let you know how it tastes, or you could try some here.
THE CORPSE FLEW FIRST CLASS IN BRUM
It's always a hoot playing at Mama Roux's in Birmingham and on Friday 10 January we'll be bringing the sky-high hi-jinks of "The Corpse Flew First Class". Don't forget you can buy a meal-show ticket too, to sample the food stalls of Digbeth Dining Club before the show starts. Gate closing soon, book quick!
THE MANY FACES OF JB
One of the great joys of Murder, She Wrote is watching JB go undercover, despite the character's claim that she is not a natural actress. Here she is in Season Two's "Widow, Weep for Me". posing as a wealthy widow to investigate the murder of her friend. It's one of my favourite non-Jessica performances - there are hints of Salome Otterbourne from Death on the Nile, but less drunk and more snobby. 
VALE JERRY HERMAN
One of Broadway's biggest legends died on Boxing Day, the composer and lyricist Jerry Herman (pictured with Angela and Carol Channing). Herman was the composer of Hello, Dolly!, Mack & Mabel and La Cage Aux Folles, as well as Mame, which launched Angela Lansbury's Broadway career. Thank you for the music Jerry.
MURDER SHE WROTE GOES TO EUROPE
One of the aims for 2020 is to take the show to Europe, with venues already in the works for Amsterdam and Brussels. If you have friends or family who you think would enjoy a Solve-Along-A-Murder-She-Wrote, let them know, and feel free to email me with any suggestions to solvealonga@gmail.com.
WAITING LIST AND RESELL
We use Outsavvy for many of our shows, and they now have a new function you might not be aware of. If you've bought a ticket via Outsavvy for a show and it sells out, you have the option to offer your tickets for re-sale via the website. If you've missed out, you can also join a Waiting List, and when tickets come up for re-sale, you can purchase them via Outsavvy. Any questions do let me know at solvealonga@gmail.com
