CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April and May is actually postponed or cancelled. Pantomimes are possible but a few venues and shows may not return and larger venues and tours are unlikely to re-appear before 2021.

Curtains archiveCurtains is a spoof murder mystery set in Boston, Massachusetts, during the late 1950s. The helter-skelter plot follows the story of an ill-fated theatre company whose inordinately untalented leading lady is murdered during the curtain call at the opening night of the production of a new musical Robbin’ Hood of the Old West. A police detective, who happens to be a musical theatre fanatic, arrives to take charge - can Lieutenant Cioffi solve the case, save the show, win the girl and also escape with his life. Curtains was the last musical written by Kander and Ebb. Their skilful and tuneful score includes the beautiful and moving "I Miss the Music", sung by a lonely composer when his writing partner has left him, which is made even more poignant by the fact that Fred Ebb died during the final stages of production, leaving John Kander to complete the project alone.
Performers Jason Manford (Cioffi), Ore Oduba (Aaron Fox), Carley Stenson (Georgia Hendriks), Rebecca Lock (Carmen), Samuel Holmes (Christopher Belling), Leah West (Niki Harris), Alan Burkett (Bobby), Emma Caffrey (Bambi), Adam Rhys-Charles (Daryl Grady), Martin Callaghan (Oscar Shapiro), Minal Patel (Johnny Harmon), Mark Sangster (Sidney), Kathryn Barnes (ensemble), Pamela Blair (ensemble), Charlie Johnson (ensemble), Kate Ivory Jordan (ensemble), Robin Kent (ensemble), Thomas Lee-Kid (ensemble), Ben Mundy (ensemble), JR Ballantyne (ensemble), Gleanne Purcell-Brown (ensemble), Samuel John-Humphreys (ensemble).
