IT’S 1959 AND OPENING NIGHT for a new musical at the Colonial Theatre in Boston. When the extremely untalented female star of Robbin’ Hood of the Old West mysteriously dies on stage, the entire cast and crew are suspects. Enter a local detective who just happens to be a musical theatre fan. It is up to him to save the show, solve the case, and maybe even find love before the curtain rises again.
