As GUIDING LIGHT's Josh and Reva, portrayers Robert Newman and Kim Zimmer (now Echo, ONE LIFE TO LIVE) will forever have a place in soap history as one of daytime's supercouples. And this spring, the duo will reunite when they star in the musical murder mystery Curtains! The production of the Broadway hit is a joint venture between Houston's Theatre Under The Stars and The Papermill Playhouse in Millburn, NJ. The show will run in Texas at the Hobby Center For The Performing Arts from Tuesday, March 29, through Sunday, April 10, then head to New Jersey from Wednesday, April 27, through Sunday, May 22.
Curtains follows the unraveling of a theater company on opening night, shortly after the leading actress meets an untimely death. Newman stars in the production as Detective Frank Cioffi, a musical theater fan who takes on the case and finds himself dealing with egos and eccentricities, more dead bodies than he bargained for, and a budding love affair. Meanwhile, Zimmer stars as brassy Broadway producer Carmen Bernstein.
