This is the curtain at the American Airlines Theater in NYC.  There are lots of textures to be seen once it’s enlarged. We were there to see Noel Coward’s “Present Laughter” with Victor Garber. It was fabulous!  I tried to get a shot of the stage while the curtain was up but we were too close to do it without catching the attention of the actors. lol  I definitely would have gotten escorted out of this one!

F-stop-f/3.3, shutter speed-1/9 sec, ISO-800, focal length-5mm

    Interesting view – I too am glad you didn’t get kicked out! I love the theater curtains with all of their folds and textures! I love how you were able to get the perspective between the two seats.

    I, too, really like the way you shot this between the seats (note to bloggers: one way to sneak it a shot). Wonderful textures!

    The stage curtains do have great texture. I really like the way the chairs provide a frame for the shot.

    I love the framing too. The rich red velvet and the gold fringe are so perfect together.

    Hello Madelaine! I love the drama and excitement just prior to curtain time! This curtain presents that feeling and tension. Nice shot. Lovely colors. Great composition. Sometimes a little imagination is better than the actual thing. We can all imagine what might be waiting once the curtain is drawn. Nice touch.
