Murder for Two

Opening Friday: Nic Delcambre and Andrea Wollenberg perform in this two-person musical whodunit by writer Kellen Blair and composer Joe Kinosian. And why those actors? Because the roles require someone who can sing, play the piano and portray 13 different roles. Actually, Wollenberg does the heaviest lifting in that regard, playing all the suspects. Randy Reyes directs the story of a small-town policeman who stumbles into a high-stakes murder mystery. The show is filled with ballads and patter songs as the sleuthing plays out on the Park Square Boss Stage. (7:30 p.m. Fri.-Sat., 2 p.m. Sun., 7:30 p.m. Wed.-Thu. Ends Nov. 1. Park Square Theater, 20 W. 7th Pl., St. Paul. $40-$60. 651-291-7005 or parksquare

The Realish Housewives of Edina

(7:30 p.m. Fri.-Sat., Thu.; 2 p.m. Sat.-Sun. Ends Nov. 15. New Century Theatre, in City Center, 615 Hennepin Av. S., Mpls. $34.50, 612-455-9501 or GRAYDON ROYCE
