"Double Indemnity" on stage

"Double Indemnity"

Cincinnati’s Playhouse in the Park brings one of Hollywood’s classic Billy Wilder films to the stage. Double Indemnity is a story filled with intrigue, lust and murder and it begins its premiere fun in the Marx Theater on April 25. One of the challenges of this production is the complex set, so Rick Pender talks with the set designer, Paul Shortt, about successfully staging a play with so many set changes while maintaining the dramatic tension.
