Actors & Playwrights Initiative with New Edgecliff Theatre present the world premiere of Phil Paradis’ Soldier’s Christmas, a stage production of the WWI night known as The Christmas Truce when enemy soldiers laid down their weapons and celebrated the holiday together. The show’s director, Bob Allen, previews this production, happening atNKU’s Corbett Theatre, with our Jim Stump.
An electric train chugs past whimsical landscapes and coastal lighthouses made of twigs, leaves and nuts. The fantasy installation includes national landmarks along with a replica of the Coney Island Ohio River shoreline entrance to the Cincinnati landmark, no doubt a nod to the creator’s Tri-State roots.
In a U.S. Botanic Garden display that pays homage to historic lighthouses, Paul Busse, Northern Kentucky artist, forager and creator of Applied Imagination, continues to add his personal creative vision to the holidays in the nation’s capital.
