Curtains at Lakewood Theatre CompanyLakewood ends its 2009-10 season with the surprise hit musical that closed on Broadway in 2008...Curtains. This hilarious show-within-a-show, murder mystery musical is a real knock-out tribute to show business, with music and lyrics by John Kander and Fred Ebb - the composer/lyricist team from Cabaret and Chicago.

Its show biz as usual until the leading lady ends up dead. The entire cast is suspect and the task of solving the crime falls to a lonely Boston detective, who just so happens to be an amateur actor in love with show business.

Lytle, Curtains opens May 7 and continue through Sunday June 13, 2010 playing Thursday through Saturday nights at 7:30 PM,  Sundays at 7:00 PM (May 9, 16, 23 and June 13) and Sunday matinees at 2:00 PM (May 16, 30, June 6 and 13).
