"Curtains," Kander and Ebb's whodunit musical, will bring down its final curtain on Broadway in June. The show will close June 29 at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre after 511 performances and 26 previews, producer Roger Berlind said. "Curtains" was one of the last collaborations between composer John Kander and lyricist Fred Ebb, who wrote the scores for such musicals as "Cabaret," "Chicago" and "Kiss of the Spider Woman." Ebb died in 2004. The murder-mystery musical stars David Hyde Pierce as a detective called in to investigate the murder of a Broadway star who dies during the curtain call of her troubled new show on its opening night in Boston.
