The case of the MPD dame
by John Herbert Cunningham
If you answered that they both created characters who were detectives, you win the boobie prize, and what a nice pair of boobies that dame has, all six, or is it eight, of them.
The only musical number that caused consternation was the opening one.
The third part of this ménage à trios is a pianist at an airport bar who goes by the name of (Gordon Roberts). He also plays a Mafioso type in a reasonably good imitation of Marlon Brando's godfather, a taxi driver, a flatfoot otherwise known as a cop otherwise known as a police officer. The difference between this character and the one played by Gardiner is that he knows these are separate characters.
He goes to the rich man's house where he meets a homeless, blond woman (are you beginning to note a trend here) who tells him she was outside the house on the night of the murder. The next day or so, he encounters the homeless woman again. This time she hands him an envelope with documents which prove that the rich man was in cahoots with the gangster and was laundering money.
Running time: 2 hours with one intermission.
