by Andrea Stephenson on April 22, 2018 in Central Pennsylvania

Curtains by John Kander, Fred Ebb, Rupert Holmes, and Peter Stone is a murder mystery wrapped up in the trappings of a romantic comedy. When it premiered at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles, Curtains received mixed reviews. However, in 2007 the show opened on Broadway and received eight Tony Award nominations. Curtains presents the audience with a show within a show.

The curtains opened on Curtains at Oyster Mill Playhouse on April 20, 2018. (more...)
