Swinging, sexy , smart, and funny! An ingenious spoof of 1940s Hollywood and whodunit films with side-by-side stories about the “real” world of a detective fiction writer and the “reel” world of his fictional gumshoe hero.

Winner of tons of Tony Awards, it’s a witty detective thriller with a jazzy score that really kills.
