Van Zandt & Milmore pay tribute to Master of Horror Alfred Hitchcock, with this comedy whodunit. Off-and-on New York couple Marnie and Jeff enter an even more complicated phase of their relationship when they think they spy their cross-courtyard neighbor do away with his wife. After they draw their torn curtain, the lady vanishes, and suspicion places murder beyond a shadow of a doubt. The bumbling witnesses sneak into their neighbor's apartment - 39 steps away - and the fun begins. Among multiple door-slammings, body-snatchings, and a frantic flashlight chase scene, two questions remain: Who killed Lila Larswald? And… if she's not dead…then who is? The crazy farce plays out on a shadow-box set that allows the audience to be present in one apartment, while viewing the action in its mirror-image neighboring unit across the way.

"If you're a fan of Rear Window on screen, you'll award Wrong Window on stage a perfect 10. A barrage of gag-filled dialogue. Knee-slappingly funny from start to finish! Take the money and run to this window before it closes!" - Philip Dorian, Two River Times

"Fever-pitched one liners, puns, slapstick, pratfalls...There are probably no people in America more adept at conveying these classic comic styles than Van Zandt & Milmore, with their wacky anything for a laugh adventuring and willingness to toss all actorly dignity out the window!" - Asbury Park Press

"With snappy dialogue peppered with Hitchcock film titles, allusions and references (there are over twenty), plus laughs aplenty, Wrong Window is a right choice for an evening's entertainment." – Syracuse.com

"You know it's a good show, when after seeing it you want to see it again!"- Ashburton Guardian, New Zealand


Wrong Window opened May 23, 2008, at the Brookdale College performing Arts Center, Lincroft, NJ, under the direction of Mark Fleming.

Our company, the Sullivan County Dramatic Workshop, did this production and broke attendance records for the month of October 2011. It was hysterical and took a month for the cast to stop laughing so we could have a run thru.
I love Billy Van Zandt.  One of my board members thinks I am a stalker because I have directed 5 of his plays. He is never a disappointment.
