This Tony Award-winning Best Musical is a deliciously funny spoof of 1940s film noir and hard-boiled detective fiction. In glamorous 1940s Hollywood, a young novelist is attempting to write a screenplay for a fast-talking Hollywood producer while trying to maintain his artistic integrity and marriage. As he creates the story about a private detective the characters come to life on stage.
