is known as one of the biggest hits on Broadway. It ran for four years with over 1800 performances. Deathtrap
has been said to be "something so evil that it infects all who touch it. The thing has a life of its own. In Deathtrap
Levin has taken the basic components of thrillers and horror stories; murder, deceit, innocent dialogue with hidden sinister meanings, plot reversals, unexpected turns of events, etc., and twisted and rearranged the pieces again and again." Thirty years after its release, it is still being performed in theaters around the globe.
In 1982, Deathtrap
was adapted into a film of the same name starring Christopher Reeve, Michael Caine, and Dyan Cannon.
