Last week, a friend and I went to see Curtains, the new part murder-mystery, part show-within-a-show musical comedy on Broadway starring David Hyde Pierce and Debra Monk. While there was nothing surprising about the narrative arch of this Broadway musical, the choreography, costumes and comic timing of the production came together to produce an entertaining performance.

Curtains follows Lieutenant Frank Cioffi (David Hyde Pierce) as he investigates the death of the talentless leading lady of Robbin’ Hood on opening night, while the company and the lieutenant work together to revive the musical-with-the-musical. Despite the formulaic story, the performances of David Hyde Pierce, Debra Monk, Jason Danieley and others make Curtains an entertaining Broadway show.
