Jessica Cranshaw, star of the new Broadway-bound musical Robbin Hood, has been murdered on stage on opening night!

The entire cast and crew are suspects.

With a nose for crime and an ear for music, Frank has his work cut out trying to find the killer whilst giving the show a lifeline.

From creators of Cabaret and Chicago, this Tony award-winning backstage murder mystery musical will have audiences laughing and guessing right to the final curtain.
