ProArts builds a better ‘Mousetrap’

Agatha Christie classic adds new dates to its world-record run

February 9, 2012

It's been quite a while since a thriller or murder mystery was presented on Maui, and I can't think of a more fitting location than the intimate ProArts Playhouse in Kihei. ProArts will open Agatha Christie's "The Mousetrap," the longest-running play in history, Friday, Feb. 17. One of Christie's seminal works, "The Mousetrap" started off in 1947 as a radio play titled "Three Blind Mice" before evolving into its current stage version which opened in London's West End in 1952 and has been running ever since. The play is also known for its twist ending, which at the end of every performance audience members and journalists are asked not to reveal.
