With a nod to the backstage murder mysteries of old, this who-dun-it musical comedy is set in 1959 Boston, Massachusetts. Lt. Frank Cioffi, who is taking the night off and enjoying an evening at the theatre, finds himself the lead detective in a murder investigation – and everyone in the cast is a suspect.  The musical received eight Tony nominations when it premiered on Broadway in 2007. Come join us for a night of musical mad-capped mayhem.
