The Internet Theater Magazine of Reviews, Features, Annotated Listings

Editor's Note
Since the pandemic has shuttered all theaters and a return to any semblance of normalcy is uncertain, CurtainUp too is frozen. Even in the post-COVID world, theater will never be quite the same again, and neither will CurtainUp. Our home page has therefore been streamlined to show only what is being posted.\ (my blog updates and reviews of streamed shows).

However, our extensive content is still available. The "enhanced by Google" search box enables you to do a quick search for actors, playwrights, plays written about at Curtainup since 1996. Though Google will pop up a couple of their own listings first, if you just scroll past them, you'll see items pertinent to your search. Below that special search box youll also find lnks to archives of older blog entries and streaming features, as well as some other special topics Curtainup had covered.
