Cottage Grover Dinner & Theater – “Curtains”
Have fun with us tonight as we head to Cottage Grove for the musical comedy whodunit – “Curtains.” From the creators of “Cabaret” and “Chicago” comes this bright and brassy musical set in 1959 Boston, where the Colonial Theatre is hosting the pre-Broadway run of a new musical. The show could be a success were it not for the extremely untalented leading lady. Jessica Cranshaw is a triple threat: she cannot act, sing, or dance (or remember when to say her lines). When she mysteriously dies on stage during the opening night curtain call, the entire cast and crew are suspects. Sounds like a fun evening to me. A delicious dinner will be enjoyed before the show. Your cost includes: transportation, dinner and show.
