Cincinnati Playhouseâ€™s â€œBook Club Playâ€ Earns LCT Nomination
Posted On April 3, 2013
Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized Cincinnati Playhouse in the Parkâ€™s The Book Club Play with an LCT nomination for Ensemble acting as well as distinguishing it as a recommended production.
The Book Club Play is a comedy about books and the people who love them. When the members of a devoted book club become the subjects of a documentary filmmaker, their intimate discussions of life and literature take on new meaning with the camera rolling. Add in the unexpected arrival of a provocative new member and the sudden inclusion of some questionable titles, and long-standing group dynamics take a hilarious turn.
Panelists praised the ensemble: â€œThe cast is near perfect. They simply seemed to BE their parts, no acting requiredâ€; â€œthey nailed itâ€. Of the production as a whole, the panelists wrote: â€œDelightful characters and funny dialogue, provided an energetic eveningâ€¦The most fun I have had at a theater this season.â€
The Book Club Play continues through May 5th. Tickets can be purchased at www.cincyplay.com.
Final LCT awards will be determined at the end of the season and announced at the LCT gala in the spring.
