The drama takes place in Latham as the Curtain Call Theater resumes performances under its own strict Covid protocols. Opening Thursday July 22, for a three week run is David Javerbaum’s “An Act of God” and it’s actually a comedy. But there have also been dramas – of the real kind – on stage.
Curtain Call’s first production after the shutdown was “At Wit’s End”, a solo show about the late columnist / comedian Erma Bombeck. Just minutes after the performance began on May 22, actress Terri Storti tripped and fell hard on stage, suffering severe bruising to her face. After an ambulance ride and about five hours in the emergency room at St. Peter’s Hospital in Albany, Storti learned there was no fracture. A week later, she returned to complete the series while wearing heavy makeup to cover up any lingering bruising.
