Celebrate Cincinnati’s rich music history in this world premiere musical about King Records. Based on interviews, the story traces the groundbreaking rise of music pioneer Syd Nathan and the artists he produced, the music he created and the enemies he made along the way. The show shares behind-the-scenes tales of King Records hits including “The Twist,” “Blues Stay Away From Me,” “Fever” and “Need Your Love So Bad.” CINCINNATI KING shines a spotlight on this revolutionary music label and its Queen City roots. Cincinnati King is suitable for adults and teenage audiences. This musical docudrama celebrates the legendary record label’s music and touches on the lives of its artists, whose complicated behind-the-scenes tales feature some mild adult language and mature themes.
