Law Revue Presents: Knives Outline

Presenting Law Revue's 47th annual musical, Knives Outline!

The creative minds behind Nat1L Treasure and JuLAWnji return to Tishman Auditorium after two years on Zoom with this hilarious musical send-up of classic whodunits. When a grisly murder straight out of the Torts textbook shakes NYU Law to its core, it's up to five JD students to solve the case, clear their names, and save the school. Along the way, they'll encounter some of law school's most frightening villains and parody classic songs from a variety of genres.

Screenings will be held in Tishman Auditorium in Vanderbilt Hall at 7 PM on the evenings of April 7, 8, and 9, with a remote viewing option available via Zoom (additional information forthcoming).

Tickets may be reserved at this link. Admission is pay what you can at the door, with half of all proceeds going to benefit Ukrainian refugees.
