TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: “Dial M for Murder” to be staged March 10-24 in SF Theatre Co.’s new home, Clarion Music Performing Arts Center in San Francisco

Mar 09, 2018
There’s a new performance venue in San Francisco, and the SF City Theatre Company has found a new home there. The Clarion Music Performing Arts Center is in San Francisco’s Chinatown at 2 Waverly Place (at Sacramento Street.) SFCTC’s first offering in the new venue will be Frederick Knott’s suspense thriller, “Dial M for Murder,” performing March 10-24.

“Dial M for Murder” is considered one of the classic examples of a stage thriller and has been revived numerous times since its first performance. In the vein of film noir, it concerns a married couple, the wife’s lover, deliciously intricate plans for a murder, and a dogged police inspector. The play is directed by David Acevedo, a San Francisco native and Bay Area theatre veteran.

The cast includes David Richardson as Tony Wendice, Adrienne Dolan as Margot Wendice, Juan Berumen as Max Halliday, Steve Ortiz as Inspector Hubbard, and Brian Johnson as Captain Lesgate.

“Dial M for Murder” is perhaps best known as the 1954 Alfred Hitchcock film adaptation that starred Ray Milland and Grace Kelly. The play premiered in 1952 on BBC Television, before being performed on stage in the same year in London's West End in June, and on Broadway in October of that year.

The Clarion Music Arts Center was founded by Clara Hsu in 2017 in the building that once housed her Clarion Music Center where she gave piano lessons and sold sheet music. Over the past year, SF City Theatre’s artistic director David Acevedo worked with Clara Hsu to convert the music store into a live theatre venue, with performance spaces on the ground floor and the basement.
