Natasha Kutchka, famed Kirov prima ballerina, and Sergei Bolstov, artistic director of the Kirov, are in the United States as part of a Cultural Exchange. Or are they? Secret codes are dropped, mysterious letters passed, and art soon gives way to a plot of international espionage. Detective Hudson Hotchkiss, actor by week and private eye by weekend, finds himself the sole orchestrator of justice when an American musician who is also a spy for the Soviet Union is shot dead. With whimsy and lines borrowed from Broadway shows, he solves the mystery and has the hills alive with sound of music.

Licensing fee and availability are quoted upon completion of a performance application.
