Curtains Opens on Broadway

My college-age daughter saw CURTAINS in its pre-Broadway run at the Los Angeles Music Center last summer and enjoyed it very much.

CURTAINS is a backstage murder mystery/musical starring the great David Hyde Pierce of FRASIER. It opened on Broadway last Thursday evening at the Al Hirschfield Theatre.

The show received mixed reviews, with many reviewers calling the show "likeable" and "old-fashioned" but not giving it raves. Bloomberg News liked it pretty well, as did The Hollywood Reporter and The New York Daily News.

The New York Times gave the show a somewhat tepid review, but nonetheless wrote that Hyde Pierce "steps into full-fledged Broadway stardom."

Clive Barnes of the New York Post didn't care for it.
