In the vein of Dick Tracy, this detective story set in the 1940s includes comedy, murder and music, and features Rick Archer, P.I. The owner of the Café Noir has been found murdered and washed ashore. Whodunnit? A gorgeous runaway was the last person seen with him. Or was it the French madame and club manager, the voodoo priestess, the shyster British attorney, the black marketeer, or the femme fatale? That depends on the audience, who get to vote on what they want Rick to do next. These decisions change the flow of this comic tribute to the Bogart era.

Murder at Café Noir is an off-beat homage to the Bogart movies, but also a genuine mystery that has enjoyed weekly productions coast to coast since its premiere in 1989.
