Frequently Asked QuestionsHere are some question our patrons frequently ask us.
Where is the theatre?
Now that’s a very good question, and the answer is: it depends!
- Our large Living Black & White™ shows are performed at the Eisemann Center for the Performing Arts in Richardson.
- Our smaller RadioVizion™ shows can be seen at the Bath House Cultural Center on White Rock Lake.
- Our non-staged, play reading series are likewise performed at the Bath House Cultural Center on White Rock Lake
Please note that the mailing address associated with Pegasus Theatre is simply a Post Office Box located in a commercial mailing center. The staff at the postal center are very nice people, but they are not theatrical performers (that we are aware of).
Where did the idea for the Black and White shows originate?
Pegasus Theatre founder and Artistic Director Kurt Kleinmann is the playwright for the popular series of Living Black & White™ shows. The idea came to him in two parts. The characters of Harry Hunsacker and Nigel Grouse came first, as they represented a twist on the relationship between Sherlock Holmes (a brilliant detective) and Dr. Watson (his somewhat dim-witted sidekick). The selection of these characters solidified the era in which the scripts would be set (the 1930s and 1940s), when black-and-white movies were in their prime in the United States. It was the next logical step to treat the black and white shows as movies that had “come alive” on stage, which required researching techniques to create the amazing Living Black & White™ effect. The technique has been refined over the years through research and experimentation, resulting in the incredible effect you see today.
What is RadioVizion?
RadioVizionTM is our own special twist to the radio shows of the 30s and 40s. It is a staged reading performed in front of an audience. We have a foley artist and actors at mics reading the play as though it were being performed for the radio. The audience gets to watch the foley artist at work and be in on the fun as the actors play out the scenes.
