A musical within the musical , collapses during a rehearsal, clearly the victim of foul play. A young cop is called in to solve the murder, and the mystery unfolds in a manner familiar to all lovers of Agatha Christie or Inspector Poirot — which is fitting, since the action is set in 1959. Everyone is instructed to stay on site as Lieutenant Frank Cioffi considers the stories and backgrounds of one suspect after another. Almost all of the characters have a motive of some kind. But there's a bit of a problem. Cioffi is a competent cop, but he's also an amateur actor crazy in love with musicals. Sometimes, as the action unfolds with lots of singing, dancing and thunkingly silly jokes, it's hard to figure out whether he's motivated more by a desire to solve the crime or to fix the many shortcomings of Robbin' Hood — which would be on its way to Broadway had it not been savaged by the local Boston critic. Due to mature subject matter, parental discretion is advised.
