Photo Flash: Solve the Murder at 54 Sings CURTAINS!
Musicals can be murder...
Step back in time to 1959 when the musical Robbin' Hood is trying out in Boston. The sets won't work, the audiences are leaving, and the leading lady has been murdered! Who did it? And why?
Last week at Feinstein's/54 Below, Boston detective, and amateur actor, Lt. Frank Cioffi was solving the murder of Jessica Cranshaw. Was it the greedy producer? The desperate director? The jealous writers? Will Lt. Cioffi solve the murder before the killer sets his sights on him?
Curtains is one of the last scores written by John Kander and Fred Ebb (Chicago, Cabaret) and features such songs as "Show People," "I Miss The Music," "Thinking of Him," "Coffee Shop Nights" and many more. Come hear Curtains sung by an all-star Broadway cast!
