Cirque du Soleil presents OVO!

I have been to see several Cirque du Soleil shows over the years, and one of my all time favorites is OVO.  The first time we saw OVO was under a big top tent a few years back.  OVO is coming back to Cincinnati in May.  Not under a big top this time, but at...

Broadway in Cincinnati presents: The Illusionists

We went to an “epic” magic show tonight at the Aronoff Center, called The Illusionists.  I use the word epic because I was with two young gents who used that very word.  I cannot remember the last time I heard my boys laugh harder than they did tonight.  Not only were our minds blown by...

We had a special treat this week – we were invited to attend the opening night production of Something Rotten, brought to town by Broadway in Cincinnati.  How is it possible that I had never heard of this Broadway musical before it came to town??  This show is HILARIOUS!  We were cracking up throughout the...

The Carnegie Presents Rock of Ages

Ella and I went to see Rock of Ages at the Carnegie this past weekend and I’ve been belting out 80’s tunes around the house ever since.  My children are un-amused, but I just can’t help myself.  Rock of Ages was all about rock and roll and fighting the system.  The storyline was weaved together using...

The Cincinnati Shakespeare Company presents "All the Great Books (abridged)"

The Cincinnati Shakespeare Company presents “All the Great Books (abridged)”

If you think that the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company only performs the works of Shakespeare you are incorrect.  They bring many other wonderfully written works to the stage and sometimes they even cram over ninety great works into one amazing show.  It sounds impossible, but somehow they made it happen.  “All The Great Books (abridged)” is...
