About this show

Curtains unfolds backstage at Boston's Colonial Theatre, where a new musical could be a Broadway smash, were it not for the presence of its talent-free leading lady. When the hapless star dies on opening night during her curtain call, Lt. Frank Cioffi arrives on the scene to conduct an investigation. But the lure of the theater proves irresistible and after an unexpected romance blooms for the stage-struck detective, he finds himself just as drawn toward making the show a hit as he is in solving the murder. A TMP Staff favorite, Curtains is an original musical comedy with a book by Tony Award winner Rupert Holmes (The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Say Goodnight Gracie), music and lyrics by the Tony Award- winning team of John Kander and Fred Ebb (Cabaret, Chicago, New York New York), and original book and concept by Tony Award winner Peter Stone (1776, Titanic, The Will Rogers Follies).
