(CINCINNATI, APRIL 24, 2012)– The League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) has awarded Jeremy Fischer and Tracy M. Schoster with awards for leading actor and actress in a play for their performances in Falcon Theatre’s production of FROZEN. The drama by Bryony Lavery was a 2004 Tony Award nominee.
FROZEN is the story of three people whose lives are tied together by a single crime — the murder of a 10-year-old girl. The girl’s mother (Schoster), her killer (Fischer) and a psychiatrist studying the case are all emotionally frozen by it. But as their lives become intertwined through the repercussions of this horrible event, they also begin to experience the thawing effect of forgiveness.
According to one LCT panelist, “Falcon Theatre has gathered an amazingly talented ensemble for its chilling production of the play FROZEN. The two main characters played by Tracy M. Schoster and Jeremy Fischer are thoroughly developed and nuanced, giving the audience a great sense of empathy and emotional connection. It’s not often that audience members react to actors’ performances in such a physical and emotional way as I witnessed at the theatre.”
Fischer is making his Cincinnati theatrical debut. He holds an MFA from the Clarence Brown Theatre Conservatory at the University of Tennessee. Schoster is a Falcon veteran, who has appeared previously in the theatre’s productions of “Down the Road” and “Hamlet,” among others.
FROZEN continues through May 5. Details and ticket information can be found at falcontheater.net.
