I love plays! Theater has been my main entertainment for probably the last 14 years. And there is so much professional theater in this town that it is astonishing!
My favorite is Cincinnati Shakespeare Company. I’ve been a season subscriber for years now. The Know is great – lots of other good ones.
The Ensemble Theater has been very off again, on again for me – so I’ll go once or twice a year. But this season’s line-up. Wow! I’m thinking of subscribing.
My favorite will probably be the holiday musical Around the World in 80 Days – they usually do fairy tales by McDonough and Kisor, but this will be a reprise of a 1999 production, one of the first creations of those 2 talented folk. The rest of the list is mainly regional premieres, on wide ranging topics, family dynamics that are funny if savage, rather than wallowing in misery. Not so much navel peering as usual. My kind of season.
