Cincy Shakes Presents: Dracula

October is the only month of the year that I try to be brave and watch scary stuff.  So it makes sense that I went to see Dracula at Cincy Shakes on Friday the 13th. The Cincinnati Shakespeare Company outdid themselves with this phenomenal production.  I was not expecting how dark and gruesome this production...

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...

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...
