Anne Arenstein talks about The Carnegie in Covington’s new production of the hit Broadway musical Chicago with co-directors Dee Anne Bryll and Ed Cohen. This production features new Cincinnati residents, happy couple and Broadway veterans David Baum (choreographer) and Leslie Goddard (Roxy.)
There’s a new production happening at Know Theatre, and this one is a modern-day twist on Shakespeare’s classic Macbeth. As Jim Stump learns from Producing Artistic Director Eric Vosmeier, Lauren Gunderson’s Toil and Trouble sets this tale of greed, power and murder in San Francisco as three over-educated, under-employed 30-somethings test friendships, make alliances and cross lines, all because of messages received in fortune cookies. And yes, it is a comedy.
From their blue collar upbringing in New Castle, Indiana to their sculptural art work to their academic careers, Kelly Phelps (associate professor and acting chair of the department of Art at Xavier University), and his identical twin, Kyle Phelps (associate professor of Art at the University of Dayton), are featured in the June/July 2013 edition of internationally respected American Craft magazine and they are with our Jane Durrell to talk about their lives and their work.
True Theatre, much like The Moth, features everyday people writing and performing their own monologues based on that show’s theme and their life experiences. Founders Dave Levy and Jeff Groh join our Rick Pender in the studio to talk about the next True Theatre event, True Crime, happening July 29 at the Know Theatre in OTR.
