The composer is dead!

From Upbeat, 1:20 pm on 18 July 2017

The combination of decomposition (pun intended), deadpan humour and death is all part of a day’s work for up and coming conductor David Kay. He’s carrying the baton for Lemony Snicket: The Composer is Dead: a fun, family friendly musical by Nathaniel Stookey that reads like a whodunit of crimes against classical music. Who killed the composer? Why is the conductor carrying a suspicious black case? And why should we be suspecting the violins?
