Curtains Tickets

Please note: Jason Manford will not be performing on Friday 20 December.

Comedian Jason Manford is set to return to the West End with the acclaimed touring production of Curtains. This hilarious musical murder mystery emerged from the minds behind Chicago and Cabaret.

Where is it showing?

Curtains is playing a limited run at Wyndham's Theatre.

When does it open?

The show opens for a four week run on 13 December 2019.

What is it about?

Curtain is an uproarious parody of musicals and whodunnits, tracking the untimely demise of starlet Jessica Cranshaw at her new show’s opening night. With detective – and huge musical theatre fan - Frank Cioffi called in to hunt down the culprit and revive the Broadway-bound show, it soon becomes clear that “break a leg” isn’t the worst that can happen on the stage!

With catchy songs and plot twists a plenty, Curtains is the perfect antidote to the darker nights and has had audiences from Bromley to Birmingham in stitches.

Who is in it?

Jason Manford stars as Frank Cioffi, having travelled across the UK on tour with the show. Although best known as a comedian, he previously appeared for a limited run opposite Michael Ball and Imelda Staunton in Sweeney Todd at the Adelphi Theatre.

Manford is joined by an ensemble including Carley Stenson, Andy Coxon, Rebecca Lock and Samuel Holmes.

Who is the creative team?

Based on a concept by Peter Stone, Curtains is another hit from Broadway legends Fred Ebb and John Kander (Cabaret; Kiss of the Spider Woman), who provide music and lyrics for the show, alongside a book by Robert Holmes.

This new revival is directed by Paul Foster and choreographed by Alistair David, with set design from David Woodhead and costumes by Gabriella Slade.

How long is it?

Curtains at Wyndham’s Theatre has a running time of 2 hours 45 minutes, including an interval.

Performance dates: 10 Jan 2020 - 11 Jan 2020

Running time: 2 hours 45 minutes (including interval)

Age recommendation: Recommended 12+. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

Special notice: Fans of The Play That Goes Wrong and Noises Off should book tickets for Curtains, which offers a zany and laugh-a-minute musical caper.

Really enjoyed this show, it had a very good storyline, which was quite different to anything I've seen before and was cool how it was like a murder mystery and the whole audience were trying to work out who committed the murder.

I had a lot of fun. It was light hearted and funny with a great cast. Perhaps dragged a little towards the end but overall definitely worth a watch. It's also a real love letter to the theatre so theatre fans will appreciate the references.

A cheerful and colourful show with some funny parts but nothing spectacular- there were no stand out catchy songs which are always good in a musical but still a good nights entertainment especially for the price

In my opinion this is a solid 4 or even 4.5. Did not know what to expect and was concerned that I would be comparing the show to Chicago or Cabaret, but it was very unique and I thoroughly enjoyed the story line as well as the songs. It is a charming musical full of twists and turns that will keep you entertained the whole time!

Surprisingly funny, gripping and entertaining with a fantastic cast whose dancing and vocals is so impressive. Kept me guessing to the end and overall was a really enjoyable visit to the theatre. Also the band sounded fantastic!

Good fun and some clever songs, twists and turns. Never liked Jason Manford for some reason, but he's good in this. Some might remember Carley Stenson, from Hollyoaks, and she's terrific - and so is the rest of the cast.
