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...

Free Shakespeare in the Park presented by Cincy Shakes {2016}

From the time that I was a very small girl I went to plays, concerts and operas with my family and now as a parent I try to do as my parents did and expose my children to the arts from a very early age.  Taking a family of six out to the theater or...
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...
Broadway in Cincinnati presents Beauty and the Beast

Broadway in Cincinnati presents Beauty and the Beast

  This week at the Aronoff Center in Cincinnati Beauty and the Beast will be taking the stage, and I for one cannot wait!    I have already warned my daughter that I will most likely be belting out “Be Our Guest” right there with Lumiere.  Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney movie,...
Broadway in Cincinnati presents The Book of Mormon

Broadway in Cincinnati presents The Book of Mormon

Broadway in Cincinnati has a very special limited run show at the Aronoff right now…The Book of Mormon!  We had the opportunity to see the show last night and I laughed so hard that I even snorted at one point, much to my embarrassment.  Let me start by saying that this show is NOT suitable...

Cirque du Soleil’s Toruk at the US Bank Arena

Over the years I have seen a few Cirque du Soleil shows, and each one is more fascinating than the next.  It sounds like the Cirque du Soleil production of Toruk is going to amaze and astound as well!  Toruk is based on one of my family’s favorite movies, AVATAR and will be coming to US...

Broadway in Cincinnati Presents IF/THEN

Broadway in Cincinnati Presents IF/THEN

I had not heard much about IF/THEN before attending the show last night.  My busy schedule of late did not allow me the time to research the show as I usually do before I go.  I’m starting to realize though that this might be the way to do it when going to a show….with no pre-conceptions...

The Cincinnati Ballet Presents Cinderella

The Cincinnati Ballet has a way of bringing magic to the stage each year when they bring a fairy tale or children’s classic to life.  This year’s fairy tale performance is Cinderella, and I’ve already heard great things about the show.  I’m disappointed that time is not allowing for us to make it to the...

Snow White was one of my favorite cartoons growing up.  I have a soft spot in my heart for sweet Dopey.  I’m excited to find out what the Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati does with this show when they bring it to life on the stage at the Taft!  All of their shows that we have...
Broadway in Cincinnati Presents Kinky Boots at the Aronoff

Broadway in Cincinnati Presents Kinky Boots at the Aronoff

My laptop died over the holidays, and I used the opportunity to spend some time offline and work on other projects that needed my attention.  I missed a few emails along the way, and didn’t spend an inordinate amount of time doing anything online.  So when it came time to go see Kinky Boots at...
Broadway in Cincinnati Presents Irving Berlin's White Christmas

There’s something truly special about going to the theater during the holiday season.  Going to a show can be a very special holiday tradition, and Broadway in Cincinnati is helping make that special tradition happen by bringing Irving Berlin’s White Christmas to life at the Aronoff Center.  I grew up loving old movies, and White...
