The story behind the new “Bamboo” curtains started when I was visiting the Chinese one morning with my (now late) friend and theater designer/historian Joseph Musil, along with Ron Mahan and El Capitan’s GM Ed Collins. We noticed how badly damaged the old curtains were. This was caused by the large bank of spotlights in the wing pockets. Upon returning to his (American Museum of Theatrical Design) studio in Santa Ana, Joe retrieved his huge collection of historical “Chinese” photos, plans and notes which he proudly showed me the original b&w pictures of the theater’s original curtains. Hence, everyone visiting the Chinese can now enjoy and what every professional theater should have and always use… CURTAINS… it’s what show business is all about!!!
