Swinging, sexy , smart, and funny! An ingenious spoof of 1940s Hollywood and whodunit films with side-by-side stories about the ďrealĒ world of a detective fiction writer and the ďreelĒ world of his fictional gumshoe hero. One balances romance and rewrites while the other slinks through a film noir netherworld of thugs and femmes fatales. Winner of tons of Tony Awards, itís a witty detective thriller with a jazzy score that really kills.
