The epic Broadway show The Phantom of the Opera has returned to Cincinnati.  You can see the show at the Aronoff Center thanks to Broadway in Cincinnati.  I have seen The Phantom of the Opera several times, and each time I’m completely captivated and entranced.  It is one of my all time favorite Broadway shows....

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}

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 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...
