Playwright Lee Mueller

Lee Mueller was born in St. Louis, Missouri. For thirty-plus years he has been involved in the performing arts, from acting, directing, and most notably as a playwright.

Starting on stage as an actor in High School, continuing through College, and onto Community theatre. Lee even made it to the silver screen as a sewer dweller in "Escape From New York." Lee spent many years in the trenches of the St. Louis Comedy club circuit in comedy sketch/improv groups: "The Way Off-Broadway Players," "The Bottom Line," and "Wit's End"- as a performer and writer. It wasn't long before the world of acting in plays and writing comedy sketches merged and he began writing plays for fun.

His first one-act play, "In Between Days" was selected to be produced during a national writers conference at local Missouri College. His second one-act, "The Favor" was chosen as a finalist in a short play competition by Pamoja Players in St. Louis.

For the past 15 years, Lee has specialized in comedy murder mystery plays that have been produced all over the world. In 2007 his play "Murder Me Always" spent a month on the stage of the Laugh Factory in New York - so technically Lee likes to say one of his scripts played "Off-Broadway".

His play "Death Of A Doornail" won "Best Original Comedy" at the 27th Annual "Arty Awards" in Fairfield California. His 12-minute short play, "The Thing That Happened" was featured at SKits in Dramanon Hyderabad, India and won Best Original Play.
