The Musical Comedy Whodunit !
Curtains is a send-up of backstage murder mystery plots. Set in 1959 Boston, Massachusett, the play follows the fallout when Jessica Cranshaw, the supremely untalented star of “Robbin’ Hood of the Old West” is murdered during her opening night curtain call.
It is up to Lt. Frank Cioffi, a police detective who moonlights as a musical theater fan to save the show, solve the case, and maybe even find love before the show reopens, without getting killed himself. Cioffi also dreams of being in musical theater.
Based on the original book and concept by Peter Stone. Book by Rupert Holmes, lyrics by Fred Ebb, music by John Kander, with additional lyrics by Kander and Holmes.
Held in Forbes Hall
General Admission $15; Seniors $12, Students $10 all schools
