From November 4-20, the May River Theatre will present “CURTAINS,” a musical based on the original book and concept by Peter Stone. The musical is a send-up of backstage murder mystery plots, set in 1959 Boston and follows the fallout when the supremely untalented star of Robbin’ Hood of the Old West is murdered during her opening night curtain call. It is up to Lt. Frank Cioffi, a police detective who moonlights as a musical theater fan to save the show, solve the case, and maybe even find love before the show reopens, without getting killed himself.
Showtimes are at 8 p.m. on November 4, 5, 11, 12, 18 and 19 (Fridays and Saturdays), with 3 p.m. matinees on (Sundays) November 6, 13 and 20. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased by calling the box office at (843) 815-5581. For more information, go to mayrivertheatre.com.
