'BOYS' ARE BACK IN TOWN
KANDER AND EBB FINALE GETS EARLY RAVE
FRED Ebb, the great lyricist of "Chicago" and "Cabaret," died in 2004.
But he left several unfinished shows at which his longtime writing partner, composer John Kander, kept plugging away.
There was "All About Us," which opened at the Westport Country Playhouse in 2007. It had some good songs, but it wasn't top-drawer Kander and Ebb, and it never left Connecticut.
More enjoyable was the musical mystery thriller "Curtains."
Starring David Hyde Pierce, it was nominated for several Tony Awards in 2007.
But it seems that Kander has saved the best show for last.
