The cast of Wamego’s Columbian Theater production of “Clue” the stage play took a couple of pages of dialogue to get fully warmed up. But the script was asking the actors to establish a comic tone without giving them obviously comic material to start with.

The play is based on the 1983 movie “Clue,” which was based on the Parker Brothers board game. And it was a slow starter commercially. In fact it was nearly a flop at the box office, but has gained a surprising cult following in later years.
