The veteran performer of the troupe, Mrs Tallulah O'Fagan (Jennifer Neal) seems to think so. Why does Emcee (Davy Bull) think he is being blackmailed?  What secrets is Madame Zoya from Minsk harbouring, and why has the Shadow really turned up to audition for the show? Will 'Sveepy Boy' the Janitor, ever fulfil the dream to become a star?
