Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) announce that FAILURE: A LOVE STORY has earned 4-Stars and recognize the director, Corrie Danieley.

Produced by Northern Kentucky University Department of Theatre and Dance, panelists state it is “Hands down one of the best main stage shows I have ever seen at NKU. It has everything.” Another added “an enchanting, energetic, somewhat whimsical story.”

“Themes of death/ love/ passage of time are all universal truths and presented with sincerity for the form and style that Danieley created so beautifully,” states another panelist.

Set in 1928 and written by Chicago playwright Philip Dawkins, FAILURE: A LOVE STORY is a magical, musical fable that traces the triumphs and defeats of the Fail sisters’ lives, lived out in the rickety two-story building by the Chicago River that was the family home and clock shop.

FAILURE: A LOVE STORY continues through December 7. Tickets can be purchased at http://artscience.nku.edu/departments/theatre/season/mainstage3.html

Nominations for LCT awards will be determined and announced at the end of the season and winners awarded at the annual LCT party in the summer.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.
