Adrift in Macao Edit

Stage Musical (2007)
Music: Peter Melnick, Book and Lyrics: Christopher Durang


Parody of film noir (particularly Casablanca), the musical is set in 1952 Macao. Rick Shaw, a casino owner is attracted to newly-arrived blonde beauty, Lureena, and hires her as a singer, much to the displeasure of his current entertainer, Corinna. Playing the piano is the ever-smiling Tempura, Enters Mitch, an American searching for the mysterious McGuffin, who had apparently framed him for murder in the USA.
