need help with javascript collapsable menu

I would like this menu to do 2 things it's not doing:

I can't get the header link to go the the page (aboutheshow.html) I am just using this as a test page right now to see if I can get it to work BTW..

Also, I would like the submenu to stay open when on the page, for instance when you are on the about the show page, I would like the submenu to be open.

Any help I would really appreciate! thank you

Here is the menu:

Thing #1:
In your "ddaccordion.js" file, replace line #189 with this:

                                if($(this).next().find('li')[0]) {
                                    return false //cancel default click behavior

Thing #2:
There's no easy way of doing this with a script this messy.  I'm guessing it's the same reason why nobody else is pitching in!

I'd suggest you consider menu alternatives:
