The Suzanne Roberts Theatre
A special collaboration with Jeff Coon and The Summer Club, 11th Hour brings the 1990 Tony Award winning “best musical” to Philadelphia for an epic concert event featuring a 17-piece band. This thrilling musical weaves together two plots, the “real” world of Stine, a celebrated author writing his first screenplay, and his steamy, mysterious, fictional detective, Stone. With a dazzling jazz score and syntilating harmonies, this 1940’s, film noir musical depicts the allure of fame and fortune and cost it takes to get there.
