And all the men and women merely players. ~Shakespeare

PLAYWRIGHT The Musical Mystery Shows

What seems like oh so many years ago Ruth wrote and produced 5 Murder Mysteries shows and produced them in the late 80s and throughout the 90s in New York. They were interactive murder mysteries set to music in bygone eras. It was one of her most creative times with a extremely talented ensemble of actors and world-class musicians. Of course, she wrote a part for herself into each of the shows.

  • The Speakeasy Murders of 1929
  • Murder at the Cantina (1940s)
  • Rock n Roll Can be Deadly (late 1950s)
  • Death is a Drag (1960s)
  • Death by Disco (1970s)


Also in New York Ruth was part of the musical group The DreamWeavers featuring Susan, Mike & Ruth.

The group recorded 2 albums and performed for children’s audiences around the Tri-State area in the late 1980s and early 1990s. They performed traditional songs for children to sing-along and also some original music from a children’s musical, “Dolly Dimples.”
