Signature Theatre (4200 Campbell Ave.) in Arlington, is opening its 22nd season on Tuesday with two world premiere musicals, “The Hollow” and “The Boy Detective Fails,” part of the American Musical Voices Project Repertory Series, making what is believed to be theatrical history by running full productions in rotating repertory.
“The Hollow” is a musical reinterpretation of “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” telling the story of an 18th century village and how rumors of a headless horseman are blamed on a stranger spreading new ideas.
“The Boy Detective” is based on Joe Meno’s novel, telling the story of Billy Argo as he faces the mystery of the death of his young sister and crime-solving partner, Caroline. Several local gay theater pros are in the cast and crew.
