Multi-award winning Foothill Music Theatre presents the whodunit musical comedy Curtains.
Set in 1959 Boston, Lieutenant Frank Cioffi, a detective with a secret affinity for musical
theatre, investigates the murder of a Broadway-bound theatre company's tremendously
untalented star on opening night. Could the culprit be the hard-edged lady producer,
one of the recently divorced songwriting team, the egomaniacal British director,
or the seemingly sweet ingénue? Lt. Cioffi is on the case! ... he may even have
to question the ingénue twice.
This backstage romp features a dazzling musical score by the legendary team, Kander and Ebb (Chicago, Cabaret), and was nominated for eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Original Score.
What the Critics Said:
"A thoroughly entertaining new musical...a blissful, often very funny celebration of a bygone era, a theater world that has largely disappeared." - Associated Press
"Curtains has, hands-down, the best book of any new Broadway musical in years..." - Talkin' Broadway
"Delightful fun-ride of a musical. An evening of bountiful fun... the musical-whodunit honors the songwriters as great entertainers." - The Record
"If you're going to perform a song about the villainy of theater critics... you'd better have a critic-proof show. Luckily, Curtains, ... is so delightful that this critic didn't even mind being called scum. Here's a return to old-fashioned musical comedy ... The show has audiences cheering long before the curtain comes down." - Theatermania
