Today released a video of Audible Theater's reading of Murder in Studio One which was performed April 27 at Off-Broadway's Minetta Lane Theater. The reading starred NBC News personalities Hoda Kotb, Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker, Craig Melvin, and Jenna Bush Hager. Watch the full video above.
The whodunit play first premiered in 1941 and was written by Norman Corwin. It runs roughly 37 minutes in duration. The show takes place in a New York radio station and follows a female private investigator and her fast-talking sidekick as they take on a murder case.
The radio play has been adapted for this reading with permission from the Norman Administrative Trust. Proceeds from ticket sales were donated to Boys and Girls Clubs of America. The performance was also released as a podcast through Audible.
