A World Premiere Musical Comedy

From Helen Hayes Award Winner Ed Dixon (Signature’s Sunset Boulevard) comes a delightfully screwball musical comedy send-up of the 1950s film noir.

Third-rate detective Nick Cutter is down on his luck when a beautiful blonde bombshell tosses a very intriguing case (and herself) into his lap. For the next 90 minutes, Nick races through every New York neighborhood in this zany, mile-a-minute whodunit. With four actors playing nearly 20 roles, Cloak and Dagger uproariously spoofs erstwhile mysteries with lightning speed and rapier wit.

“Ed Dixon is pitch perfect.” – Variety
