A brand-new UK tour of the Tony Award winning musical Curtains, starring comedian Jason Manford, will open at Churchill Theatre, Bromley on October 4 and the following week will be at Manchester Palace Theatre, October 8–12.

From the creators of Cabaret and Chicago, it tells the story of Jessica Cranshaw, star of the new Broadway-bound musical Robbin Hood, who has been murdered on stage on opening night. The entire cast and crew are suspects. Time to call in the local detective, Frank Cioffi, who just happens to be a huge musical theatre fan. 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.

Suitable for ages 12+.
