Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park’s THE BOOK CLUB PLAY with an LCT nomination for Ensemble acting as well as distinguishing it as a recommended production.
THE BOOK CLUB PLAY is a comedy about books and the people who love them. When the members of a devoted book club become the subjects of a documentary filmmaker, their intimate discussions of life and literature take on new meaning with the camera rolling. Add in the unexpected arrival of a provocative new member and the sudden inclusion of some questionable titles, and long-standing group dynamics take a hilarious turn.
Panelists praised the ensemble: “The cast is near perfect. They simply seemed to BE their parts, no acting required”; “they nailed it”. Of the production as a whole, the panelists wrote: “Delightful characters and funny dialogue, provided an energetic evening…The most fun I have had at a theater this season.”
THE BOOK CLUB PLAY continues through May 5th. Tickets can be purchased at www.cincyplay.com.
Final LCT awards will be determined at the end of the season and announced at the LCT gala in the spring.
The League of Cincinnati Theatres was founded in 1999 to strengthen, nurture and promote Cincinnati’s theatre community. LCT provides its member companies and individual members with education, resources and services to enhance the quality and exposure of the theatre community in Cincinnati and increase community awareness, attendance and involvement.
