From the creators of Broadway’s Elf the Musical and The Wedding Singer comes a hilarious film noir musical comedy about Eddie Cain, a detective of the 1940’s in the mold of Humphrey Bogart’s Sam Spade; his domineering but loving mother Mira, and Jo Van Cleave, the smoldering temptress with a secret who comes between them. This madcap send-up of film classics like The Maltese Falcon and Double Indemnity features a gorgeous swing jazz score.
