A woman witnesses a murder committed by a killer who happens to also be a Gilbert and Sullivan fan. The police then produce an entirely new Gilbert and Sullivan musical on Broadway for her to star in, so that while acting in the play she can identify the killer, who is guaranteed to be in the audience, of course! Peppered with eleven mildly relevant Gilbert and Sullivan numbers.
