               Set in 1950s Boston, Curtains is a musical mystery comedy based on the original book and concept by Peter Stone. This musical is a send-up of backstage murder mystery plots and follows the fallout when Jessica Cranshaw, the extremely untalented star of Robbin' Hood of the Old West, is murdered during her opening night curtain call. It is up to musical theatre fan, police detective Lt. Frank Cioffi, to solve the murder and save the show.

    New York Times critic Ben Brantley called "Lt. Frank Cioffi the best damn musical theatre character since Mama Rose in Gypsy.”
