(Cincinnati, OH) – Cincinnati Music Theatre (CMT), with support from the Cincinnati Arts Association , is pleased to announce its second cabaret experience at the Aronoff Center’s intimate Fifth Third Bank Theater – NOTHING LIKE A DAME: A Cabaret of Broadway’s Leading Ladies. The cabaret runs June 8-9 & 15-16 (see detailed schedule below), and follows a sold-out run of CMT’s premiere cabaret – Love Is Love – in February of this year.
Tickets are only $25 and include a lite bite from We Olive and one beverage (ticket price includes all fees). Tickets are available now at CincinnatiArts.org, Cincinnatimusictheatre.org, (513) 621-ARTS , and the Aronoff Center Ticket Office.
The sparkling new cabaret will celebrate Broadway’s legendary leading ladies – from Mary Martin and Ethel Merman to Idina Menzel and Kristen Chenoweth. Sitting at tables with a drink in hand and delicious lite bites from We Olive, audiences will hear memorable musical moments from the Golden Age of Broadway right up to today’s contemporary hit shows, including Anything Goes, The Sound of Music, Gypsy, Evita, Into the Woods, and Wicked.
A charming master of ceremonies will share interesting facts and amusing anecdotes about these beloved Broadway dames, whose personalities and talents created stage legends and transcended marquees. It’s the perfect show for a night out with friends or your favorite Dames!
NOTHING LIKE A DAME is created by the talented team who made CMT’S first cabaret a sold-out success – Skip Fenker (Director) and Michael Spresser (Musical Director).
“We are so excited to create another magical evening for Cincinnati,” said Skip Fenker, Director of NOTHING LIKE A DAME. “Thanks to the support of CAA, CMT has created incredible new opportunities for local talent to perform at the Aronoff Center.”
Cincinnati Music Theatre became one of the Aronoff Center’s founding resident companies when the venue opened in 1996, and since that time the 50+-year-old community theater has offered popular, large scale, award-winning productions of new and classic Broadway musicals, created and performed by some of the finest theatrical talent in the region. The cabaret partnership with CAA is a new venture for both arts organizations.
We Olive & Wine Bar (lite bite partner) is a retailer and tasting room featuring California extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and artisan wines, serving a fresh and delicious menu of plates perfect for wine pairing.
