Time Out says
This forgotten Kander and Ebb musical tells the story of a theatreland murder
This musical murder mystery has songs by notorious writing duo Kander and Ebb, who wrote 'Chicago' and 'Cabaret'. Unlike their other big hits beginning with 'c', 'Curtains' hasn't had a major London outing until now; director Paul Foster's touring production will mark its West End premiere.
'Curtains' first opened on Broadway in 2007, where it got mixed reviews for its unlikely blend of backstage drama and Agatha Christie-style sleuthery. It might not be Kander and Ebb's strongest work, but this revival's retro design, slick song-and-dance routines and rapid-fire wisecracks will make a case for its comeback.
