Tonight, the story starts when a highly successful Broadway production team are brought together at an isolated country mansion - apparently to prepare for a backer's audition for their new musical. However, there is another reason for the gathering... New York's best and brightest are making one last attempt to solve the identity of "The Stage Door Slasher", the murderer responsible for the tragic end of the team's last production! But is the slasher really a German spy or just another sour kraut? While a blizzard rages outside, the composer, lyricist, director and actors prepare for what could be their last performance... if only they could keep track of each other!!!!
