Let me start off by telling you that if you haven't seen the 1985 cult favorite movie "Clue," based on the iconic board game, you're doing yourself a disservice. Buy it or stream it soon; it's recently been restored in high definition.
Even if you haven't seen the movie yet, you may be at an advantage to those like me who know the movie backwards and forwards, because a version for the stage is being performed this month in Huntsville. By special arrangement with the writer of the movie and the film studio, many aspects of the original draft of the movie that were cut from the finished product will find themselves performed in front of an audience.
The basic story is thus: It's New England in the 1950s and in the midst of McCarthyism and the Communist scare, a group of strangers find themselves invited to a mansion for a dinner party. Each person carries with them a scathing secret, and someone's threatening to blackmail them all.
