Monk, Pierce, Ziemba, et al. Extend Curtains Run Until August 2008
Directed by Scott Ellis and choreographed by Rob Ashford, the show is set in 1959 in Boston during the pre-Broadway tryout of a new musical. When the leading lady mysteriously dies onstage during the applause at the end of the show, the entire company and creative team are possible suspects; their various motives must be sorted out by a local detective (Pierce) who happens to be a musical theater fan.
The production design team is headed by Anna Louizos (sets), William Ivey Long (costumes), Peter Kaczorowski (lighting), Brian Ronan (sound), William David Brohn (orchestrations), and David Loud (music direction).
