Murder at the mic! - The only interactive musical thriller in retro radio play format! With live music from "The Convicts".
What does that mean? A fun evening of crime fiction with lots of surprises, unexpected twists and turns and lots of handmade music about murder and manslaughter!
A murderer is on the loose in St. Pauli. Chief Inspector Hallig is already waiting at the crime scene. And tonight you play along! Cold corpses - hot music!
What is MORD AM MIKRO! about? - Hamburg in the 1950s. The city lives in fear and terror. Who is the ominous murderer who is up to mischief in St. Pauli? And who will it be next? There is only one person who can help: the veteran Chief Inspector Hallig, who is joined in his investigation by the young, ambitious colleague Ingo Stolz. Both commissioners of the Hamburg homicide squad are on the trail of mysterious clues between the harbour, St. Pauli, bigwig mansions and the authorities.
With the help of the audience, Detective Superintendent Hallig investigates a series of murders on the Kiez and encounters a Hanseatic shadow world full of greed, corruption, lust and revenge. The accompanying songs, all of which tell of murder and manslaughter, are by Falco, Tom Jones, Bob Marley, Boney M. and Michael Jackson, among others.
