To celebrate ten years of Neglected Musicals presentations, the Kander and Ebb musical CURTAINS will be presented at Belvoir
Curtains is a musical mystery comedy based on the original book and concept of the same name, the musical is a send-up of backstage murder mystery plots, set in 1959 in Boston and follows the fallout when Jessica Cranshaw, the supremely untalented star of Robbin’ Hood of the Old West is murdered during her opening night curtain call. It is up to Lt. Frank Cioffi, a police detective who moonlights as a musical theatre fan, to save the show, solve the case, and maybe even find love before the show reopens, without getting killed himself.
