It's the brassy, bright, and promising year of 1959. Boston's Colonial Theatre is host to the opening night performance of a new musical. When the supremely untalented leading lady mysteriously dies on stage during her curtain call, the entire cast and crew are suspects. Enter a local detective, who just happens to be a musical theatre fan. He plans on not only solving the crime, but saving the show and maybe even finding love before the show reopens, without getting killed himself! Nominated for eight Tony Awards and nine Drama Desk Awards in 2007, including Best Musical. Footlite's production is the Indianapolis premiere of this very funny musical directed by Dan Scharbrough.

Tickets are $17, $15 for students/seniors, $10 for children. Click here to purchase online.
