My Life at the Theater: DIAL M FOR MURDER
We saw DIAL M FOR MURDER at the Cape Playhouse on Cape Cod in 1998. The production starred Juliet Mills (from TVs Nanny and the Professor) and Maxwell Caulfield. We had seen it done as a play before, but this setting really enhanced the experience.
The Cape Playhouse is the oldest summer theater venue, going back to 1927 where its first production starred Basil Rathbone in THE GUARDSMAN. Bette Davis first worked there as an usher and many other future Hollywood stars played here first.
We always try to find a theater when we are away from home and this production was a real treat.
