Playhouse 4000 MilesAmy Herzog’s play “4,000 Miles” has earned 4 Stars from the panelists of the League of Cincinnati Theatres. Panelists described it as a “delightful, lovely play” intersecting “youthful tragedy with the struggles of the elderly as friends die off.”

Panelists raved, “The acting is stellar. The costumes were spot on…The set was home. It’s Herzog’s language that gives us such a ride. Double thumbs up.”

Another  comment, “a beautiful little jewel …It felt as if Herzog had invaded my personal memories and stolen actual conversations I have had with my great-aunts, my grandmother. Her characters are so finely wrought that I wept with recognition… It’s fantastic across the boards.”

The panelists singled out the performance of Rosemary Prinz as Vera, stating her performance “is untouchable”  and  “phenomenal in her role as a 91-year old leftist in Manhattan, weaving comic charm with tragic moments in a moving, powerful manner.”

“4,000 Miles” continues through March 9 at the Shelterhouse in Cincinnati’s Playhouse in the Park.  For tickets and more information go to cincyplay.com or call 513-421-3888.

Nominations for LCT awards will be determined and announced at the end of the season and winners awarded at the annual LCT gala in the spring.
