CURTAINS, book by Rupert Holmes, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb. A Tucson premiere! (Curtains ran on Broadway from March 2007 to September 2008.) Brought to the stage by the creative team of Todd Poelstra, Mickey Nugent, Dr. Mark Nelson and featuring for the first time the acclaimed Nancy Davis Booth.

Curtains is a murder-mystery, musical comedy whodunit set in a theatre in 1959 Boston. This play within a is a fun madcap venture with plenty of dancing, singing and humor. The mayhem begins when the remarkably untalented star of the new musical “Robbin’ Hood!” is murdered during her opening night curtain call. A police detective, who moonlights as a musical theater fan, sequesters the entire cast and crew backstage to solve the case and save the show. Musical numbers include Show People, That Away, Wide Open Spaces, The Woman's Dead, He Did It, and A Tough Act to Follow. Nominated for seven Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Original Score and Best Choreography.

ASL interpreters: April 19. Tickets are $15 with discounts available. Set in a present-day small town, a man’s right to think is challenged as faith and science collide in a raging debate between the literal interpretation of creation found in the book of “Genesis” and the scientific theory of evolution as posited by Charles Darwin in his “Origin of Species” (1859). Written in 1955, the play is a fictionalized version of the famous 1925 Scope’s “Monkey” Trial, involving a teacher arrested, tried and convicted for teaching evolutionary theory to his public school students during science class.
