From the Tony Award-winning creators of ‘Cabaret’ and ‘Chicago’, Curtains 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”.


About

Opened in 1907, the Sunderland Empire is the North East of England’s flagship theatre venue. This beautiful Edwardian theatre is one of the region’s largest theatres, capable of squeezing in up to 2,200 people, and it serves as an excellent variety entertainment venue, hosting theatre, dance, comedy and touring musicals. The Sunderland Empire was officially opened in 1907 by variety and vaudeville star Vesta Tilley, with its owners Richard Thorton and Edward Moss aiming to open up theatres to working class people in the region. As theatre declined with the rise of television and cinema, the Empire was taken over by Sunderland City Council who managed to keep the venue afloat. The Empire re-opened in 1960 and played host to numerous important performances, including a visit by The Beatles during their first UK national tour. In the early 2000s the Empire’s operators changed hands again and the venue underwent a multi-million pound refurbishment. The upgrades to the Empire mean that it is proudly the only theatre between Edinburgh and Manchester capable of staging large West End productions, something it has done often since - Starlight Express, Miss Saigon and Footloose have all been performed there.
