By Rupert Holmes, John Kander, Fred Ebb and Peter Stone. Bankstown Theatrical Society. Bankstown Town Hall Theatre. October 8 – 16.
For a second time in the space of a single weekend, I’ve enjoyed a Sydney community musical theatre production that has strayed from the well-worn repertoire, with entertaining results.
Written by Kander and Ebb (Cabaret and Chicago), the musical theatre pedigree of Curtains is assured, but their final Broadway collaboration, a backstage musical-within-a-musical whodunit, is probably unknown to all bar absolute musical theatre fans.
