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...
Cyrano de Bergerac presented by the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company

Cyrano de Bergerac presented by the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company

This past weekend a new play opened up in town, and you will want to check it out before it’s run ends.  Cyrano de Bergerac presented by the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company is an excellent show, and not just for adults.  I took my ten year old son with me because we are trying to expose...

2015 Free Shakespeare in the Park presented by Cincy Shakes

­ The Cincinnati theater scene is pretty awesome and has a lot to offer, but when you have a large family sometimes it’s not in the budget to take in many shows and performances.  Luckily though we have a pretty wide array of FREE performances in our area, from stage productions to concerts.  And the...
"The Birds" Have Come to Cincinnati

“The Birds” Have Come to Cincinnati

We kicked off the Halloween season last week at the premiere of the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company‘s latest and greatest production, “The Birds”.  A nice dinner out and a scary play was an ideal date this time of year.  I have loved Hitchcock’s version of “The Birds” since I was a young lass.  On the weekends...
Gatsby Comes to Cincinnati

Gatsby Comes to Cincinnati

This weekend Michael and I were invited to attend the opening performance of The Great Gatsby at the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company in Cincinnati.  Now, neither one of us are professional theatre reviewers, but we thought this performance of the Great Gatsby was outstanding.   We always enjoy shows in this intimate theater, and because we’ve been...
Cheap Date Nights in Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky

Cheap Date Nights in Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky

I have four children.  I love said children.  But I also cherish my alone time with my husband.  We’ll jump at any chance to have a date night.  While we enjoy having nice dinners in swanky restaurants from time to time, we also look for relatively cheap date nights as well.  While wracking my brain...

August is right around the corner and that means the return of FREE performances by the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company in parks around our region.  Michael and I love going to Cincy Shakes to see shows in their intimate theater, but come August the company spreads their wings and performs in front of the public in...
Cincinnati Shakespeare Company Presents: Henry IV

Cincinnati Shakespeare Company Presents: Henry IV

The Cincinnati Shakespeare Company has just begun performing Henry IV last week.  I haven’t had a chance to see this show yet, but if it’s anything like every other show I have seen at Cincy Shakes then you know it’s going to be great.  We’ve yet to see a show there that we haven’t thoroughly...

For Valentine’s Day this year we had an extra special date night!  Thanks to the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company we were invited to the opening night of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead.  I love opening nights at Cincy Shakes…not only is there always a great sense of excitement in the air about the show that is...
The Cincinnati Shakespeare Company Presents 'Hamlet'

The Cincinnati Shakespeare Company Presents ‘Hamlet’

Most of us HAD to read some Shakespeare in High School, some of us grudgingly, and some willingly.  I was one of the folks that actually enjoyed reading Shakespeare’s works in school, so I was happy to hear that the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company was going to bring Hamlet to their stage, and even more ecstatic...

Cincinnati Shakespeare Company’s “Every Christmas Story Ever Told (and Then Some!)”

Forget making gingerbread houses, driving around looking at cool light displays, or any of that other holiday fun stuff…I’ve found my new favorite holiday tradition!  Sunday night we went to see the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company’s production of “Every Christmas Story Ever Told (and Then Some!)” and it was fantastic!  I cannot remember the last time...
