About This Show

Samantha Spade, Ace Detective is a film-noir detective musical (in black and white). Originally written for young people to perform at TADA! Youth Theater, this one-time concert event features a grownup Broadway cast, including Tony Award nominees Adrienne Warren (Shuffle Along) as Veronica Venus and Marc Kudisch (Finding Neverland) as the villainous Greenstreet, along with Caitlin Kinnunen (The Bridges of Madison County) as Samantha. The hard-boiled one-act musical tells the story of a misfit teen who escapes reality by entering a fantasy world of dames, palookas, grifters, chiselers, flatfoots, and flimflammers, where she is Samantha Spade, ace detective — the go-to gumshoe who always solves the case (for $25 a day, plus Twizzlers). The book and lyrics are by Lisa Diana Shapiro (Princess Phooey), and the music is by Georgia Stitt (Snow Child).
