Jason Manford to star in Kander and Ebb’s musical whodunnit CURTAINS
A brand-new UK tour of the Tony Award winning musical “CURTAINS” starring comedian Jason Manford will open at Churchill Theatre, Bromley on the 4 October 2019 and will tour the UK and Ireland until 4 April 2020 where the production will complete its run at the Wolverhampton, Grand Theatre.
From the Tony Award-winning creators of ‘Cabaret’ and ‘Chicago’, this production 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.
Detective ‘Frank Cioffi’ will be played by stand-up comedian, writer, actor, radio and television presenter Jason Manford. Jason has many theatre credits to his name including playing ‘Caractacus Potts’ in the UK Tour of “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” and ‘Leo Bloom’ in the UK Tour of “The Producers”. His London theatrical credits include playing ‘Pirelli’ in “Sweeney Todd” at The Adelphi Theatre and ‘Nathan Detroit’ in “Guys and Dolls” at the Royal Albert Hall.
