If you love mysteries so much that you enjoy a good parody of the genre, then Billy van Zandt and Jane Milmore’s Wrong Window! is the play for you. Curtain Call Theatre will present this sly take-off on the films of Alfred Hitchcock beginning this weekend; Wrong Window! is a comedy packed with peeping Toms, murders, body snatchings, chase scenes and, yes, suspense.
Curtain Call is presenting the regional premiere of Wrong Window! Critics (and audiences) have been kind to other productions; a critic for the Syracuse Post Standard wrote, “With snappy dialogue peppered with Hitchcock film titles, allusions and references, plus laughs aplenty, Wrong Window! is the right choice for an evening’s entertainment.”
The director is Phil Rice, and the cast features Kathleen Carey, Jenna Dott, Jack Fallon, Ben Katagiri, Jed Krivsky, John J. Quinan, Joe Sears and Sarah Wasserbach.
Wrong Window! opens tomorrow (Friday, May 25) and runs through June 23 at Curtain Call Theatre (210 Old Loudon Road, Latham). Tickets are $22. Performances are Thursdays at 7:30 PM, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM, and Sundays at 3 PM, For more info, call 877-7529, e-mail email@example.com, or visit curtaincalltheatre.com.
