Radium Girls

By D.W. Gregory

Based on true events, this story takes us to the U.S. Radium Corporation from 1918 to 1928.  Radium, a new “miracle” substance, is mined and used as a glow in the dark paint for wartime watches.  Painting these watch dials is an ideal job for young women, but when they start becoming ill, Grace takes the corporation to court.  This drama takes us through the complexities of fighting for workplace safety and a corporate leader’s desire to keep his company alive.

This musical comedy “whodunit” takes place on the stage of the Boston’s Colonial Theatre after the premiere of an upcoming musical flop.  When the leading lady falls dead after the curtain call, Lieutenant Frank Cioffi is called in to solve the case.  However, Cioffi is an amateur performer himself.  Is he more interested in solving the case, or saving the show?  This contemporary musical pays homage to the great musicals of the early Broadway era with big show numbers, catchy tunes, and a surprise twist at the end.
