The League of Cincinnati Theatre (LCT) announces the Covedale Theatre’s PLAID TIDINGS is a 4-Star Show. Special recognition goes to Steve Goers for Musical Direction and Direction of a Musical, as well as the whole ensemble.

After an unfortunate accident,the 1950’s boy band returns to earth. Their angelic mission: bring a little heavenly ‘harmony’ to an apathetic world at Christmas. The cast includes Tyler Huckstep (Jinx), Charlie Meredith (Sparky), John Battagliese (Francis), and Thomas Knapp (Smudge), all juniors and seniors at CCM.

A panelist notes that “from the very beginning, the quartet engaged the audience and maintained this rapport and participation throughout the show.” Another states “it was the beautiful harmony and comic timing that really stands out.” A final panelist encourages the audience with PLAID TIDINGS is a Christmas revue like the old time TV shows and one you’ll remember for seasons to come…and you don’t need to have a cardigan sweater to enjoy the fun!”

Panelists found the play “an unusual, fanciful story…captivating and filled with charm, quirks and surprises…a must-see production.”

In BUREAU OF MISSING PERSONS, a blue scarf, a piece of chalk, and a pocketful of leaves are clues that lead Angela on a quest from her New York apartment to a cave in Moscow in search of someone missing. Inspired by the magical realism of Jorge Luis Borges, BUREAU OF MISSING PERSONS explores what it takes to come back to life when you’ve been smothered by grief.

BUREAU OF MISSING PERSONS continues December 20th. Tickets can be purchased at http://www.knowtheatre.com/

LCT announces Cincinnati Shakespeare Company’s THE COMEDY OF ERRORS is a 4-Star show.

“Cincinnati Shakespeare has mounted another fast-paced, thoroughly entertaining production of a classic Shakespearean comedy. The carnival concept worked perfectly, and the sight gags were hilarious” states one panelist.

Billed as one of Shakespeare’s silliest and earliest comedies, it features not just one but two sets of twins and all the hijinks that follow due to the mistaken identities. Jeremy Dubin and Paul Riopelle delight as “the Dromios” with “their fantastic comedic timing and facial expressions.”

THE COMEDY OF ERRORS runs through December 12 and tickets can be purchased at www.cincyshakes.com.

Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) announce that FAILURE: A LOVE STORY has earned 4-Stars and recognize the director, Corrie Danieley.

Produced by Northern Kentucky University Department of Theatre and Dance, panelists state it is “Hands down one of the best main stage shows I have ever seen at NKU. It has everything.” Another added “an enchanting, energetic, somewhat whimsical story.”

“Themes of death/ love/ passage of time are all universal truths and presented with sincerity for the form and style that Danieley created so beautifully,” states another panelist.

Set in 1928 and written by Chicago playwright Philip Dawkins, FAILURE: A LOVE STORY is a magical, musical fable that traces the triumphs and defeats of the Fail sisters’ lives, lived out in the rickety two-story building by the Chicago River that was the family home and clock shop.

FAILURE: A LOVE STORY continues through December 7. Tickets can be purchased at http://artscience.nku.edu/departments/theatre/season/mainstage3.html
