Based on the 1928 narrative poem of the same name by Joseph Moncure March

Decadence and excess are the life of the party in this jazzy 1920s whodunnit. A steamy prohibition tale, steamrolling and roaring its way across the stage, this musical features one of the most exciting, pulse-racing scores ever written. This production is an Indianapolis and Footlite premiere. Recommended for mature audiences.

Music and Lyrics by Karey Kirkpatrick and Wayne Kirkpatrick

Two brothers set out to write the world’s first musical in this hilarious mash-up of sixteenth-century Shakespeare and twenty-first century Broadway. Set in the 1590s, the brothers are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star known as “The Bard.” It is becoming clear that “nothing’s as amazing as a musical,” so don’t miss your chance to see this history-twisting tale. This production is an Indianapolis and Footlite premiere.
