From the Broadway creators of Chicago The Musical and Cabaret, comes the new Broadway musical Curtains. A backstage musical-murder-mystery-comedy, Curtains is the clever and amusing account of Lieutenant Frank Cioffi, a Broadway musical loving detective called in to unearth who murdered a talent-challenged leading lady on opening night.
