John Kander and Fred Ebb have been known to string together a decent ditty or two - "New York, New York", for example. Here, Mr. Kander cobbles together the scraps of one of their final projects, an old-fashioned Broadway musical about the production of an old-fashioned Broadway musical. TV star (and former habituée of New York's Off-Broadway stages) David Hyde Pierce joins Broadway stalwarts Debra Monk and Karen Ziemba, together with a murder of Broadway's usual crowers and crooners for this musical comedy murder mystery.

This would be a good ticket for lovers of the old song and dance stylings of the Street - there's plenty of both to be had.

Plot: The talentless leading lady has just been offed. A stage-struck detective investigates the imbroglio, and is drawn into a nefarious net of antagonism and alliteration.

A great choice for those looking for traditional Broadway musical, though there are a few four letter words, and the choreography is probably a bit too racy for the tykes. It's an easygoing musical, but an adult one, the kind that 1950's suits used to flock to to unwind from the day and dream of chorines.

Cast News: David Hyde Pierce, Debra Monk, Karen Ziemba, Jason Danieley, and Edward Hibbert have signed on to play through the end of the run.

Appropriate for 10 +.
Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.

Here's the show's performance at the Tony Awards, as introduced by Mr. Kander:
