Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized lead actor Matt Dentino, choreographer Kate Glasheen, and costume designer Caren Young for their contributions to Covedale Theatreâ€™s Will Rogers Follies.
The Will Rogers Follies is the Tony award winning musical that chronicles the life of Will Rogers, one of Americaâ€™s most beloved humorists, entertainers, and pundits, who captivated the country with his common sense wisdom.
Panelists were enamored of Matt Dentinoâ€™s performance as Will Rogers: â€œMatt Dentino delivers as the homespun, nonchalant and witty title characterâ€¦full of charm and talentâ€¦He made me believe he WAS Rogers.â€ Of Caren Youngâ€™s costume design, panelists wrote: â€œLavish designs with thoughtful color coordinationâ€¦This was supposed to be a Ziegfeld Follies, and the costumes for the 13-member chorus measured up. The variety was impressive.â€ Finally, Kate Glasheenâ€™s choreography was highly praised: â€œfast-paced, complicated, and perfectly executed.â€
Covedaleâ€™s Will Rogers Follies runs through August 31st. Tickets can be purchased at http://www.cincinnatilandmarkproductions.com
Nominations for LCT awards will be determined and announced at the end of the season and winners awarded at the annual LCT party in the summer.
