Is this a hard-boiled detective tale disguised as a lounge act – or the other way around? Direct from The Red Eye Lounge, Buddy Toupee tickles the ivories and serves up plot concoctions like a Chandleresque Greek chorus. The private eye searches for a missing blonde through a double-dealing world of smoky bars, rain-slicked streets, and more blondes. This quest lures the audience to an unnamed city of mystery, music, and demolished dreams.

Gunmetal Blues premiered at the Phoenix Little Theatre in Phoenix, AZ in May 1991 under the direction of Michael Barnard.
