Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati’s newest premiere, Freud’s Last Session, is a challenging imagination of what a conversation between the father of psychotherapy, Dr. Sigmund Freud, and visionary writer C.S. Lewis might be like. On this night in 1939, they meet and discuss life and death, God, love, sex, myth and more. The actors portraying Freud and Lewis, Barry Mulholland and Bruce Cromer, join Robyn Carey-Allgeyer to talk about this production and the challenges of portraying these two great 20th century thinkers.

Blue Wisp Jazz Club

Doctor Dave Photogrpahy

Lee Hay sits down with local attorney, musician and co-owner of the Blue Wisp Jazz Club, Ed Felson, to discuss the current financial problems facing the club and the efforts he is undertaking to stabilize the business. The Blue Wisp’s move to a larger space downtown, plus adding a full food menu, have both increased costs exponentially. While making no guarantees, he does want to try everything possible to keep the club open and a home for live music.
