By:  Anthony Giaimo

Curtains for Myron is a new dark comedy by Anthony Giaimo that centers around Myron, an aging Mafia gumbah "wannabe" and Jerry, his over the hill gay actor brother. These polar opposites humorously litigate old wrongs and cruelly open old wounds.  The day spirals out of control when a visit from Myron's hooker girlfriend and his troubled daughter expose some guarded family secrets. Hounded by the police, Myron takes matters (and a semi-automatic pistol) into his own hands.  

Curtains for Myron stars film actor Anthony Giaimo* and stage veterans Susan Cella* and Michael Iannucci* and Tina Keyes.

* Member of Actor's Equity Association, the Union of Professional Actors and Stage Managers in the United States, appearing under a Special Appearance Contract.
