In these theatres there was a drop-curtain, but little or no scenery.
Under a sky as blue and amid nature poetical as a drop-curtain, one's moral nature dozes.
My screen and gas are set up in front of the drop-curtain, and the most delicate touches will tell anywhere.
The Drop-curtain should be made of white muslin, and measure in width several inches wider than the opening in the picture-frame.
Gerhardt had painted the drop-curtain, and assisted in the general construction of scenery and effects.
They had a great map on the drop-curtain and I looked at the markings that were supposed to be on the planet.
The girl had her eyes always on the orchestra, and was waiting for the opening of the world that lay behind the drop-curtain.
The falling water was like a drop-curtain, swept across the stage of the open tract of sawdust.
I shall have that scene of yesterday everlastingly before my eyes, like a drop-curtain.
About noon the mist lifted and rolled away like a drop-curtain in a theater.
