Director Derek Potocki is offering “Bullets for Broadway" by David Landau this October and once again TDJ is calling all thespians!

If you enjoy a good farce / Murder Mystery role - they are gunning for you! Three fine fellas and three sassy dames are required for the show from this award winning playwright best known as the inventor of the popular interactive mystery play.

Gangster Tony Alto & his wife Toffee are back, in a story that answers the question, what would happend if the Sopranos met The Producers. Toffee wants to be a Broadway star and Tony needs to "clean" some money. So he has hired two producers to mount a hit musical - "The Mafia Queen" - starring Toffee. The only catch - the show must be sold out opening night and get great reviews, no matter what it costs - or else! Leave it to Baxter Mallystock and his playwright partner Eli Blain. You're invited to the party after opening night to revile as the reviews come in, along with the FBI and a few stray bullets. It's a brand new evening of Mystery, Comedy, Music and great Food which just goes to prove that sometimes when people say they're going to make a hit, they mean it!
