The final production of Stage Center’s sixth Mainstage season is Curtains, Broadway’s musical comedy whodunit from the writers of Cabaret and Chicago with music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb, and book by Rupert Holmes. Directed by Jared Watson, choreography by Courtnei Gabriel & Tamara Mayer Sexton, and Seth Taylor as musical director.

Curtains takes place backstage at Boston’s Colonial Theatre in 1959, where a new (possible) Broadway smash is being threatened by its talentless leading lady. When (gasp) she dies on stage during the curtain call, a local detective arrives to investigate the cast and crew. But when, in true dramatic fashion, the glitz of of the theatre draws him in and after romance strikes, he finds himself just as motivated to make the show a hit, as he is in solving the murder.

Starring the fabulous local talent of Daniel Salazar (the detective), Mary Kate McLaurine (the ingénue), Anna Maria Sparke (the lyricist), Cara Derrick (the producer), Chris Schmoutz (the composer), David Brown (the producer’s husband), John Bogan (the director), Liesl Cruz (the wannabe), Rick Stovall (the accountant), Matthew Carroll (the choreographer), Jason Shidiskis (the critic), Jasey Gilbert (the stage manager), Kelly Vaden (the movie star). This production also features Aubrey Buckner, Cameron Cason, Cassidy Cason, Logan Digilormo, Jordan Farris, Meredith Fisher, Cameron Hughes, Chelsea Maielli, Lucas Mainiero, Cade Ostermeyer, and Benjamin Williamson in the énsemble.
