(Cincinnati, OH) – The Cincinnati Arts Association (CAA) and Cincinnati Music Theatre (CMT) are excited to announce LOVE IS LOVE: A Cabaret of Broadway Songs About Love at the Aronoff Center’s intimate Fifth Third Bank Theater on February 9-10 and 16-17 (see detailed schedule below).

The witty and touching musical revue will be created by Skip Fenker (Director) and Michael Spresser (Musical Director), and produced by Karen Galliers. Sitting at tables with a drink in hand, audiences will hear Broadway classics, old and new, about the many different aspects of love. Beloved songs such as “Seasons of Love” (Rent), “Love Changes Everything” (Aspects of Love), and “Falling Out of Love Can Be Fun” (Irving Berlin’s White Christmas) will be sung by CMT’s top talent. It’s the perfect show for a Valentine’s date or a special evening with friends!
LOVE IS LOVE is the premiere production of a partnership between CAA and CMT to produce Broadway-style cabarets at the Aronoff Center. CAA has been operating and managing the Aronoff since its opening in 1995, the same year CMT became one of the venue’s founding resident companies. The 50+ year-old community theater offers exceptional productions of new and classic Broadway musicals, created and performed by some of the finest theatrical talent in the region. The cabaret partnership is a new venture for both arts organizations.
“The Aronoff Center’s Fifth Third Bank Theater is the perfect venue to showcase CMT’s remarkable talent, and we believe that the intimate and comfortable cabaret setting will make for a memorable evening out,” said Todd Duesing, Cincinnati Arts Association’s Chief Operating Officer. “ We look forward to working with our friends at CMT to create a new entertainment experience for musical theatre fans of all ages.”
In a true spirit of collaboration, CAA and CMT are co-presenting this premiere cabaret production, with CAA managing the operations and marketing and CMT directing and producing the revue.
“The cabaret will showcase the talents of both groups in order to bring this one-of-a-kind musical experience to the Aronoff Center,” said Skip Fenker, Director of LOVE IS LOVE. “Audiences can expect to hear some of the greatest Broadway songs ever written in an intimate theater setting with other musical theatre fans.”
