Curtains at Mayflower Theatre, Southampton

Curtains at Mayflower Theatre, Southampton

by Catherine Collins.

The musical mystery comedy is heading for Southampton. Jason Manford will head to Mayflower Theatre in the hilarious whodunit, Curtains, from 7 to 11 April, 2020. From the Tony Award-winning creators of Cabaret and Chicago, the 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 and the entire cast and crew are suspects.

Manford plays local detective, Frank Cioffi, who just happens to be a huge musical theatre fan, with a nose for crime and an ear for music.  Strictly Come Dancing winner Ore Oduba (in selected venues) and Carley Stenson – whose West End credits include Les Miserables, Legally Blonde, Shrek the Musical and Spamalot – will join Manford on stage for a show packed full of catchy songs, unforgettable characters and plot twists galore! 

Suitable for aged 12 and over. Tickets for Curtains are on sale now from Mayflower Theatre Box Office telephone: 02380 711811 or online at
