Show summary:
In this spoofy musical murder whodunit, Hercules Porridge Jr., son of the famous Hoboken detective of the same name, just might solve the mystery…or he might not. Overcoming his ineptness to investigate the goings on at Crimson House, a seedy hotel where they guests pay outrageous rent for shoddy service, he discovers what they are actually paying is BLACKMAIL! Adding murder to the mystery, a corpse is discovered in the sitting room, and a beautiful secretary is done in by deadly orchid juice. This hilarious musical is full of eccentric characters, including mystery writer Anguish Crispie, a curious young man in safari attire, a strange actress, the crackpot Colonel Chutney, and Jeeves, the directionally-challenged butler. With a rousing and haunting score by the amazing Bill Francoeur, this campy private eye musical comedy is worth further investigation!
