    Dial M for Murder

    Former tennis pro Tony Wendice is married to the wealthy Margot so that he can maintain a comfortable lifestyle with little effort.When Tony discovers that Margot is having an affair and may leave him, he hatches what he believes is the perfect crime and blackmails an old school chum into murdering Margot so that he can inherit her money. But the plan goes wrong at the last second, forcing Tony to improvise and setting into motion an increasingly tense cat-and-mouse game between Tony and a dogged police inspector who is convinced that things aren't what they appear to be. This will be the first time "Dial M For Murder" has been professionally revived in New York City since it originally played on Broadway in 1952. Featured in the cast: George Ashiotis, J.M. McDonough, Pamela Sabaugh, Xen Theo and Nicholas Viselli. Sound effects are performed by Ann Morelli and Gary Bergman, who also provides the music. The scenic design is by Merope Vachlioti, lighting is by Bert Scott, the costumes are by Chris Field and the fight choreography is by Matt Opatrny. THEATER BY THE BLIND is a critically acclaimed company made up of both visually impaired and sighted theater professionals. Founded in 1979, the company's mission is to change the image of the blind from one of dependence to independence, to fight the stereotypes and misperceptions associated with blindness, and to show how vibrant, fluid and exuberant the visually impaired can be. Over its long history, the company has won multiple awards and critical accolades, ranging from the New York Times' assertion that their work is "designed to defy expectations of blind performers . . . the triumph of the Theater by the Blind is completely evident each time two actors turn to each other and, amazingly, their eyes meet . . . " to the New York Post calling Theater By The Blind "quite simply one of the most enjoyable companies in the country."
