Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized the College Conservatory of Music Drama Departmentâ€™s The Crucible with a 4 Star Rating.
Written in 1953 Â as a parable for McCarthyism by American playwright Arthur Miller,Â The Crucible tells a story of hysteria and witchcraft in colonial Salem.
Panelists praised The Crucible as â€œa skillful, intense, heartfelt, and nearly perfect production of The Crucible. I truly watched in wonder as the story unfolded.â€ â€œThe ensemble acting was terrificâ€¦this cast was admirable in its portrayal of a wide range of ages, young to middle-age to elderly.â€ As one panelist noted: â€œI would recommend the production because it is a classic play that still resonates today.â€
League of Cincinnati Theatre panelists evaluate productions on a 5 star scale and recommend shows at either a 4 star or 5 star level. 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.
