We arrive at the Office Bullpen. Violet is introduced to Judy, and Judy reveals that her husband left her for a younger woman, which is why she doesn’t have much work experience. Violet shows her the ropes and introduces her to the other women in the office, including Doralee (”Around Here”). Next, she introducers her to Franklin Hart. He is the epitome of a pompous, smarmy boss and immediately sends them off to fetch his coffee. Doralee comes in for dictation but Hart begins an aggressive flirtation. She refuses his advances despite his numerous attempts to get her into compromising positions; he vows to have his way with her (”I’m Here For You”). The pursuit is abruptly interrupted by his wife, Missy.

Seymour assures Mushnik, who is reading the paper, that nothing is broken. At 11;00, Audrey, Mushnik’s dizzy blonde employee, comes in with a black eye. Even though he has had no customers all day, Mushnik scolds her tardiness as another crash erupts from the back room. Noticing Audrey’s black eye, Mushnik suggests that her boyfriend is not a nice boy. Audrey reminds Mushnik that you don’t meet nice boys on skid row. Seymour comes out and proceeds to dump a tray of re-potted plants. Mushnik yells at him, but Audrey intervenes. Fed up with everything, Mushnik chases Ronnette, Crystal and Chiffon off of his stoop.

The Musical Comedy Murders Of 1940 – 1476103

As the composer, lyricist, actors and director prepare their performance, and a blizzard cuts off any possible retreat, bodies start to drop in plain sight, knives spring out of nowhere, masked figures drag their victims behind swiveling bookcases, and accusing fingers point in all directions. However, and with no thanks to the bumbling police inspector who snowshoes in to investigate, the mystery is solved in the nick of time and the “Slasher” unmasked—but not before the audience has been treated to a sidesplitting good time and a generous serving of the author’s biting, satiric and refreshingly irreverent wit.
