trueLIES on Jan. 26

It was said that George Washington could not tell a lie and Abraham Lincoln was known as “Honest Abe”.  The past X-number of decades, however, have taught us that honesty is not necessarily a pre-requisite for the job anymore, so who knows?  …we might have a future president on our stage for this show where lies spin out of control and make things worse or, seemingly make them better.  But whatever you do, please don’t condemn our storytellers.  What is a lie and what is truth is not always so easy to discern.

The mission of True Theatre is to bring together a wide variety of people to share stories in an effort to create community, encourage discussion, and remind everyone that ALL of us have stories to tell with unique insights and broad appeal.

2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 150,000 times in 2014. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 6 days for that many people to see it.

AND BABY MAKES SEVEN on Jan. 12

QCQTC_And Baby Makes SevenAND BABY MAKES SEVEN
Presented by Queen City Queer Theatre Collective
Jan. 12
Over-the-Rhine

Directed by Lindsey Augusta Mercer

Cast: Maggie Lou Rader, Justin McCombs, Erin McCamley & C. Aiden Marie Sims

The play tells the story of Anna and Ruth, a lesbian couple, who enlist their gay friend Peter to help them create a family. But are any of them ready for parenthood? Tensions rise as the three adults prepare for the imminent arrival of their baby—and matters are made all the more challenging by the persistence of the three imaginary children who already live with them. The lines between fantasy and reality, child and adult, love and madness crisscross through this hysterically funny and deeply touching play about what it means to be a family.

Patrons are encouraged to bring new or gently-used costume rhinestone jewelry when they come to see CINDERELLA at the Aronoff Center for the Arts, January 6-18, and those donations go directly to the local non-profit organization Kenzie’s Closet.

Over 350 low-income high school students are invited to shop for prom dresses and accessories each year at Kenzie’s Closet, at no cost to these junior and senior high school students. Attendees can be part of creating the magic and the prom memories for these young ladies as Kenzie’s Closet is in need of costume rhinestone earrings, necklaces, bracelets and tiaras.

Donations are also accepted in advance of the show at the Aronoff Center Box Office.

THE HANDMAID’S TALE
Presented by Know Theatre of Cincinnati
Jan. 23-Feb. 21
Over-the-Rhine

Adapted for the stage by Joe Stollenwerk

Directed by Brian Isaac Phillips

Starring Corrine Mohlenhoff

In the near future, what’s left of the United States has become a theocracy known as the Republic of Gilead. As with many women in Gilead, Offred has had her name and family taken from her, forced to become a Handmaid, a vessel for population growth, valued only for her viable ovaries. In the midst of the oppressive new regime, and armed with memories of life before the revolution, Offred struggles to maintain her individuality, personhood, and hope for a better possible future.
