A hilarious uproarious production full of wit and wonderful who-done-it whimsy. The actors were marvelous, appearing to truly savor their roles, and the choreography and music were mesmerizing. This musical murder mystery was executed so well...continued

Description

Curtains is a backstage murder mystery and musical comedy set in the 1950’s Boston. After the leading lady’s mystifying curtain call demise, Frank Cioffi (David Hyde Pierce), homicide detective and musical theatre aficionado, is on the case! He’s got a tough job as the bodies pile up, the ensemble dwindles, and everyone is a suspect. And that second act needs work! Can Cioffi solve the murders and save the show before it reaches Broadway?

Curtains is both a classic whodunit and classic Kander and Ebb. Ahmanson audiences will be the first to see this brand new musical wonder before it heads off to New York for a Broadway run.

John Kander and Fred Ebb’s 40-year songwriting collaboration have produced distinctive, original, fantastical award-winning musicals for the stage including Cabaret, Zorba, Chicago, Kiss of the Spider Woman, The Act, and for the screen Funny Lady and New York, New York, for which they created the classic title song. Rupert Holmes (book) is a multi Tony Award-winner for The Mystery of Edwin Drood.
