It is a brassy, bright, and promising year of 1959. Boston’s Colonial Theatre hosts the opening night performance of a new musical. When the leading lady mysteriously dies on stage, the entire cast & crew are suspects. Enter a local detective, who just happens to be a musical theatre fan! Featuring the songs of Kander and Ebb in their final original collaboration, Curtains is a collision of theatrical traditions – and most of all a fun and enjoyable ode to the stage.

The year is 1959 and Boston’s Colonial Theatre is hosting the opening night performance of “Robbin’ Hood! – a new musical of the Old West.” The cast is doing their best, but the show’s star, Jessica Cranshaw, can’t act, sing or dance. After the bows, Jessica Cranshaw falls to the ground and is rushed to Boston Hospital. We find out from Lieutenant Frank Cioffi, a local detective, that Jessica was murdered. The cast and crew are locked down in the theatre – trying to solve the murder and prepare for a re-opening. Cioffi questions the producers, the cast, the crew, the writers, the director and everyone involved in the production and offers tips along the way to improve the failing show.
