STARRING JASON MANFORD

GENERAL ON SALE: 10AM, 18 FEBRUARY!

From the Tony Award-winning creators of ‘Cabaret’ and ‘Chicago’, this production tells the story of Jessica Cranshaw, star of the new Broadway-bound musical Robbin Hood, who has been murdered on stage on opening night! The entire cast and crew are suspects. Time to call in the local detective, Frank Cioffi, who just happens to be a huge musical theatre fan. 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.

Detective ‘Frank Cioffi’ will be played by stand-up comedian, writer, actor, radio and television presenter Jason Manford. Jason has many theatre credits to his name including playing ‘Caractacus Potts’ in the UK Tour of “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” and ‘Leo Bloom’ in the UK Tour of “The Producers”. His London theatrical credits include playing ‘Pirelli’ in “Sweeney Todd” at The Adelphi Theatre and ‘Nathan Detroit’ in “Guys and Dolls” at the Royal Albert Hall. In 2017 Jason released his debut album “A Different Stage” which reached Top 10 in the UK Charts. He has toured internationally as a stand-up comedian, and is a popular face on UK television having appeared on programmes including “Live At The Apollo” (BBC One), “Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow” (BBC One), “QI” (BBC Two), “Big Fat Quiz of the Year” (Channel 4) and “8 Out of 10 Cats” (Channel 4). Jason was nominated for Best Actor at the Royal Television Society Awards for his role as ‘Marty’ in the BBC One drama “Ordinary Lies”.

Suitable for ages 12+.
