It's the brassy, bright, and promising year of 1959. Boston's Colonial Theatre is hosting the opening-night performance of a new musical. When the leading lady mysteriously dies on stage, the entire cast and crew are suspects. Enter a local detective, who just happens to be a musical-theatre fan! Curtains is the final musical from the American musical-theatre composing giants Kander and Ebb, who brought us such works as Cabaret, Chicago, and Kiss of the Spider Woman. The original Broadway production garnered eight nominations at the 2007 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
