We're getting mighty excited about the forthcoming West End premiere of Kander & Ebb's 2007 Broadway musical whodunnit CURTAINS! Especially after watching these videos with Jason Manford, Rebecca Lock and other members of the #StageFaves cast. Have a watch!
From the Tony Award-winning creators of Cabaret and Chicago, Curtains tells the story of Jessica Cranshaw, star of the new Broadway-bound musical Robbin Hood, who has been murdered on stage on opening night. All the cast and crew are suspects. Time to call in the local detective, Frank Cioffi, who just happens to be a massive musical theatre fan (you can relate, right?). With a nose for crime and an ear for music, Frank has his work cut out trying to find the killer whilst giving the show a lifeline.
Curtains has music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb, book by Rupert Holmes, original book and concept by Peter Stone with additional lyrics by John Kander and Rupert Holmes.
In this production, currently winning critical and audience raves on tour, Jason Manford is Detective Lt Frank Cioffi. He’s joined by Carley Stenson as Georgia Hendricks, Rebecca Lock as Carmen Bernstein, Samuel Holmes as Christopher Belling, Leah Barbara West as Niki Harris, Alan Burkitt as Bobby Pepper and Andy Coxon as Aaron Fox.
Also featured in the cast are Emma Caffrey, Adam Rhys-Charles, Martin Callaghan, Minal Patel and Mark Sangster. Joining them in the ensemble are JR Ballantyne, Kathryn Barnes, Pamela Blair, Charlie Johnson, Robin Kent, Thomas-Lee Kid, Ben Mundy, Gleanne Purcell Brown, Samuel John-Humphreys and Nia Jermin.
