A mystery worthy of its source material

NPR posted an article yesterday about the troubles besieging a prospective Broadway musical version of Daphne du Maurier's novel Rebecca. According to the article, the production's major investor, a dude named Paul Abrams, allegedly died of malaria* shortly before the show was ready to start rehearsals. When the show's producer tried to get the money from Abrams's estate, he was unable to meet with an estate representative—or even verify that the man existed at all. Now people are wondering if someone invented Abrams in an effort to secure additional funding, or if the whole thing was just an elaborate hoax.

*Because rich investors die of malaria all the time.
