Downtown LA: "Curtains" at the Ahmanson Theatre

On Wednesday evening (July 26) , my friend Jessie and I had dinner at CPK at 7th/Fig (conveninently located across from the 7th/Metro station) before heading off to see Curtains at the Ahmanson Theatre at the Music Center (two blocks from the Civic Center Station Red Line stop).

Starring David Hyde Pierce and Debra Monk, Curtains is a backstage murder mystery and musical comedy set in 1950s Boston. This Kander and Ebb show lives up to its promise of mystery, music, and humor. With memorable musical numbers, great comedic timing, and a murder mystery that keeps you on our toes, Curtains is a thoroughly enjoyable show that keeps you laughing throughout. David Hyde Pierce's portrayal of homicide detective and musical lover Frank Cioffi , Debra Monk's feisty Carmen Bernstein, and Edward Hibbert's role as snooty director Christopher Belling is just icing on the cake.

Curtains makes its world premiere here in Los Angeles and the show runs until September 10th.
