WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

THERE'S NO COMMUNISM LIKE SHOW COMMUNISM... This is an uproarious musical comedy set during Broadway's Golden Age of the 1950's! Follow the adventures of an unsuccessful composer / lyricist team as they are kidnapped by the KGB and taken to the USSR to ghost-write communist propaganda musicals. Will they choose fame or freedom? Don't miss this one-night-only encore presentation of Prospect's sold-out 2006 production! "A gleefully ridiculous new musical." -- The New York Times "Like The Producers (with Soviets filling in for Nazis), Iron Curtain simultaneously parodies and pays loving homage to old-school musicals, and deserves to be as big a hit. It's springtime for Khrushchev!" -- The Village Voice "Fizzy show tunes, dizzy shenanigans and amorous subplots ... The cast of triple threats is uniformly terrific... This is one curtain not to miss." -- Time Out New York "A deliciously ditzy book by Susan Dilallo, song after melodic song by Stephen Weiner with devilishly clever lyrics by Peter Mills, and talent galore to sing and dance up a storm." -- Curtainup.com "A heart-shaped box of theatrical candy... clever historical references, clever theatrical references, silly jokes, groan-inducing puns, and delightful songs." -- Broadwayworld.com
