Speaking of ''Murder on the Orient Express,'' I love Sidney Lumet's 1974 movie adaptation, with Albert Finney as Poirot, plus Richard Rodney Bennett's stylish score. It's so much better than the 2017 remake, with Kenneth Branagh as Poirot. ... But did anyone see the 2017 stage version, adapted by Ken Ludwig? It debuted at McCarter Theatre in Princeton, N.J.; Allan Corduner played Poirot. Wasn't there talk of it going to Broadway?
