Riverside Theatre’s Waxlax stage turns into a high-spirited Victorian musical hall with its robust and meticulous production of The Mystery of Edwin Drood.
Curtains is a show designed for anyone who loves musical comedy, or anyone who has ever played Toto in a community theater production of The Wizard of Oz.
