Another lockdown must-watch for musical theatre fans takes place on Tuesday 14 April 2020. And the producers of CURTAINS are inviting fans to get involved too with their own #ShowPeople videos. Get filming!
Our #FirstNightTakeover series continues with Perry O’Bree attending the opening of Curtains at London’s Wyndham’s Theatre. Perry is wowed by the incredible dance numbers, fabulous vocals & on the edge of his seat as he tries to solve such an entertaining musical whodunnit. Plus he gets to chat post-show to the stars including Jason Manford, Carley Stenson, Rebecca Lock, Samuel Holmes and lan Burkitt. It’s certainly a musical to lift your spirits.
Curtains, the murder mystery musical comedy by Chicago and Cabaret creators Kander & Ebb, had its Broadway premiere in 2007 in a production starring Frasier's David Hyde Pierce. Why has it taken so long for it to at last receive its West End premiere? And why is it so very perfect for the West End?

As we get ready for the West End premiere of Kander & Ebb's musical whodunnit CURTAINS, we've rounded up review highlights from the show's tour to date. Time to get booking!
