The well-known series of "Living Black & White" shows has been designed and produced by Pegasus Theatre since 1986. It uses a technique developed at Pegasus Theatre that combines trade-secret makeup, special lighting, meticulous costuming and set creation, and stylized acting to create the illusion that the audience is watching not just a play, but a 1940s black-and-white movie brought to life on stage.
"XSR: Die!" (theatre lingo meaning to Cross Stage Right and die) features Harry Hunsacker, a would-be actor turned would-be detective, in a mysterious mixture of murder and mayhem.
The story takes place backstage at a Broadway theatre on opening night of a new play by famed playwright, Clayton Farrell. The tyrannical director, Douglas Mallory, wants to make a last-minute change to the climactic scene of the play. A shot rings out and someone falls dead. Fortunately for the killer, Hunsacker (again portrayed by Pegasus Theatre artistic director and playwright Kurt Kleinmann) has stumbled into the wrong theatre looking for an audition, and things just get a lot more complicated!
This affectionate parody of detective films in the 1930s and 1940s will delight the whole family.
Pegasus Theatre is a professional not-for-profit theatre that began operations in October 1985. The mission of Pegasus Theatre is to "produce new and original comedies in a professional setting, highlighting the talents of North Texas theatre artists."
