Marvin Kaplan’s A Good House for a Killing Receives Rave Review14-Jan-2012 Created by Marvin Kaplan, A Good House for a Killing, debuted at the California Artists Radio Theatre in July 2011. Kaplan’s production received a rave review by The Tolucan Times’ Pat Taylor:
"This play, A Good House for a Killing, was written by the beloved and quirky Marvin Kaplan (book and lyrics), who also hilariously appears here as a German personal assistant to a ‘blowhard’ Shakespearian actor. (Music by Scott Martin & Richard Loring.) At 84 years young, Marv’s creativity and zest for life is remarkable! … John R. Lee is wonderful as the brash and boozing thespian, who rubs everyone the wrong way. There are those who plot to end his miserable life, but eventually he redeems himself. In a highlight moment, his song performance on ‘Give Me Tonight’ was brilliantly moving! A talented cast of 15 notable working actors plays these ‘tongue-in-cheek’ roles with pizzazz in this Wild West, barroom musical comedy! … A fun-loving concept in theatrical offerings! Kudos to all involved!"
