The play “The Mousetrap” (The Mousetrap), the most played theatrical show over the years in the world, which celebrated its seventieth anniversary, is scheduled to open on November 25, on Broadway for the first time next year.
The play by British writer Agatha Christie premiered on November 25, 1952 at the Royal Theater in Nottingham. It was initially thought that the play would only run for eight months, but it has since become one of the biggest-running plays in London’s West End, running nearly 29,000 times and being seen by 10 million people.
According to “BBC Arabia”, the transfer to “Broadway” comes after the theatrical show received a positive boost, when it appeared in the recent murder mystery movie, “Look How They Run.”
The film is set in 1953 against the backdrop of the play’s 100th performance, with an all-star cast that includes Saoirse Ronan, Ruth Wilson, Adrien Brody, David Oyelowo and Sam Rockwell.
And at a time when details of the venue and launch dates for the play on Broadway have not yet been announced, there was a special showing on Friday at midday in London, for some people who have worked or participated in the production of the work in the past.
