If you have ever been involved in the cutthroat world of community theater, then Showtime is for you. I was involved in community theater in my teens and twenties and can tell you everything author Suzanne Trauth has included in her humorous cozy mystery centered around an ill-fated production of Romeo and Juliet is exactly right. From the diva-esque director to the cast getting out of control at rehearsals, been there, wielded that sword. My favorite scene had to be the funeral, but I was riveted to the story all the way through.

Here is my review of Showtime:
Dodie is a successful manager of a local restaurant. Managing is her thing, so when the local community theater asks her to come organize the production of a Romeo and Juliet she jumps right in with schedules and charts. When a murder occurs, Dodie meets up with the new police chief, Bill, and her sense of putting things right prevails once again. I loved the way Suzanne Trauth made the mystery interesting and easy to follow and her sense of humor came through in scenes like the full-Elizabethan-dress funeral and the trust exercise. There’s no sillier business like show business. 4 Stars
