Anatomy of a Murder at the Historic Vista Theater

This play is based on a local court case that was made famous in the 1959 movie of the same name starring Jimmy Stewart.

This compelling court room drama about a small town Michigan lawyer is part of U.P. History. Don’t miss your opportunity to experience this famous court case brought to life on stage. Featuring a cast of ambiguous characters whose motives are repeatedly called into question. A murder mystery followed to the letter of the law.

If you’re a U.P. native you may know someone who was involved in the filming of the movie. You certainly know some of the locations this story takes place: Marquette County Courthouse, John Voekler Home in Ishpeming, Lumberjack Tavern & Thunderbay Inn in Big
