THE LAST FIVE YEARS Cancelled at Warsaw Federal Incline Theatre

WFIT logoCincinnati Landmark Productions announced today the cancellation of its February production of THE LAST FIVE YEARS at the Warsaw Federal Incline Theater.

“It breaks my heart to cancel this re-scheduled production, especially since this show was shut down only 3 performances into its initial run in March 2020 before the pandemic forced us to close our theaters,” said Executive Artistic Director Tim Perrino. “But the reality is that the COVID spread and recent surge won’t allow us to support this production with needed staffing and ticket sales.”

This announcement does not affect the remainder of the Marquee Series at the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts, nor the upcoming Summer Classics Season at the Warsaw Federal Incline Theater.

Patrons with tickets to this cancelled production will receive a full refund or ticket credit and will be contacted by the CLP Box Office staff directly or  you can call the Box Office at (513) 241-6550.
