casting has been announced for CURTAINS, a new, original musical
comedy featuring one of the last scores by the legendary
songwriting team of Kander & Ebb. The Curtains production will open
Thursday, March 22 on Broadway at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre (302
West 45th Street, west of Eighth Avenue). Curtains previews will begin on
Tuesday, February 27.
CURTAINS stars David Hyde Pierce (Niles Crane from Frasier) as
Lieutenant Frank Cioffi and Debra Monk as producer Carmen
Bernstein. The production also stars Karen Ziemba as lyricist
Georgia Hendricks, Jason Danieley as composer Aaron Fox, Jill
Paice as ingénue Niki Harris and Edward Hibbert as director
Christopher Belling, with John Bolton as theatre critic Daryl
Grady, Michael X. Martin as stage manager Johnny Harmon, Michael
McCormick as investor Oscar Shapiro, Noah Racey as choreographer
Bobby Pepper, Ernie Sabella as producer Sidney Bernstein and
Megan Sikora as understudy Bambi Bernét (now that's a nice
cast). The show is about a killing that takes place during a
musical's out-of-town tryout. The producer, director,
songwriters, actors and stage manager are all suspects.
Curtains adds a nice dose of traditional musical comedy:
tunes, laughs, send 'em out humming with a book by Rupert
Holmes (multiple Tony Award®-winner for The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Say Goodnight Gracie), music by John Kander, lyrics by
Fred Ebb (the Tony Award®-winning songwriters of Cabaret,
Chicago, New York New York), original book and concept by Tony
Award®-winner Peter Stone (1776, Titanic, The Will Rogers
Follies), and additional lyrics by John Kander & Rupert Holmes.
CURTAINS is directed by four-time Tony Award®-nominee Scott
Ellis, also represented on Broadway this season with The Little
Dog Laughed and the national tour of 12 Angry Men. Choreography
is by Tony Award®-winner Rob Ashford (Thoroughly Modern Millie).
Producers are Roger Berlind, Roger Horchow, Daryl Roth, Jane
Bergère, Ted Hartley and Center Theatre Group. CURTAINS had its
world premiere on August 9, 2006 at Center Theatre Group’s
Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles.
CURTAINS backstage murder-mystery develops backstage at Boston’s Colonial Theatre in 1959,
where a new musical could be a Broadway smash, were it not for
the presence of its talent-less leading lady. When the
starlet dies on opening night during her curtain call, Lieutenant
Frank Cioffi (David Hyde Pierce) arrives on the scene to conduct
an investigation. But the lure of the theatre proves
irresistible and after an unexpected romance blooms for the
stage-struck detective, he finds himself just as drawn toward
making the show a hit, as he is in solving the murder.
Performance schedule for CURTAINS will be Tuesday-Saturday at
8:00 PM, with matinees Wednesday and Saturday at 2:00 PM, and
Sunday at 3:00 PM. Starting March 27th, 2007, Tuesday evening
performances will be at 7:00 PM.
