ON THE BILL AT DEAN COLLEGE
The School of the Arts at Dean College recently performed Curtains.
Elizabeth Carsley of Winthrop had a principal role in the production.
Set in 1950s Boston, Curtains is a musical mystery comedy based on the original book and concept by Peter Stone. This musical is a send-up of backstage murder mystery plots and follows the fallout when Jessica Cranshaw, the extremely untalented star of Robbin’ Hood of the Old West, is murdered during her opening night curtain call. It is up to musical theatre fan, police detective Lt. Frank Cioffi, to solve the murder and save the show.
New York Times critic Ben Brantley called “Lt. Frank Cioffi the best damn musical theatre character since Mama Rose in Gypsy.”
Curtains – Book by Rupert Holmes, Music by John Kander, Lyrics by Fred Ebb, Original Book and Concept by Peter Stone.
