Curtains

Our latest production, Curtains, the hit musical from Kander & Ebb (creators of “Cabaret”, “Chicago” and “Steel Pier”) debuted in Del Rio the first and second weeks of August, 2013.  A play within a play (a common theme in theatre), this story centers on a murder mystery on the stage of the off-Broadway show “Robbin’ Hood”.  With actors literally dying onstage, a police detective-come-amateur-actor must catch the killer.  In the process, he becomes enamored of one of the actresses, helps reunite the estranged writing team for the show, and rescues the play itself.  Terra and Robert hit the stage again, this time assuming for the first time roles as husband and wife, the characters of Georgia Hendricks and Aaron Fox, the lyricist and composer for the play within a play.  Unfortunately, the quality of the video that was taken of the show was not good enough to post, even in clips.
