Mainstage Production History

You're invited backstage to Boston's Colonial Theatre! It's 1959 and there's a new musical coming to town. It looks like Robbin' Hood of the Old West could be a Broadway smash, if it weren't for the supremely untalented leading lady. What's a show to do? But wait! News just in! The leading lady is murdered during her opening night curtain call. Whodunit? Everyone's a suspect. Can a police detective who moonlights as a musical theater fan save the show, solve the case, and maybe even find love before the show reopens? From the creators of Chicago and Cabaret comes this hilarious new musical comedy whodunit filled with romance, mystery, laughter and song and dance. It's Curtains!
