All is fair in love? Even murder? That's the question posed by this light and funny suspense comedy about a love triangle in a Howard Johnson Motor Inn. A three scene love triangle involving a woman, her lover, and her husband. In the first scene the wife and her lover plot to murder the husband. In the second scene the wife and her husband are plotting to murder the lover. The third scene has the husband and the lover plotting to murder the wife - but this attempt, like the others, fails.
"Enough laugh lines, mirth provoking situations and extravagant sight gags to outfit two rapid fire farces of the absurd." -Variety
"A holiday of laughter... Beautifully polished, very funny very American comedy." - WNBC TV
"Funny and intelligent and certainly pertinent to the people who flock to Broadway... Magnificently zany." - Saturday Review
"Funny is funny." - TIME Magazine
Murder at the Howard Johnson's premiered at the Golden Theater in New York City, May 17, 1979, directed by Marshall W. Mason.
