Two decades after its London premiere, Artistic Director Josie Rourke revives one of the acknowledged greats of 20th century musical theatre.
A "film noir" musical about a writer named Stein, whose main fictional character, a hard-boiled detective named Stone, seems to have a much more interesting life than his creator does. As their stories move in parallel, Stone tries to solve a murder mystery while Stein tries to get his love life in order. In the finale, the two realize "I'm Nothing Without You." Each song in the score slyly recalls the style of a different 40s big band.
