CSC’s “Romeo and Juliet” Earns 3 LCT Nominations

Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized Cincinnati Shakespeare Company“™s  “œRomeo and Juliet“ with LCT nominations for lead actress (Sara Clark), direction (Brian Isaac Phillips), and set design (Andrew Hungerford), as well as distinguishing it as a recommended production.

One of the most beloved romantic tragedies in Shakespeare“™s canon, Romeo & Juliet is the tale of the Bard“™s star-crossed lovers, brought to life in a modern world of passion and conflict. In defiance of their families and amidst the animosity of friends, a young couple will risk everything to be together.

Panelists praised Sara Clark“™s portrayal of Juliet as full of “œpassion and conviction,“ initially playing the giddy teenager perfectly and later engulfing the audience in her emotional unrest, “œcapturing the honesty of the part“. Of Brian Isaac Phillips“™ directing, they noted, “œthe world of this production was well thought out and skillful“¦with a nice balance of concept and storytelling,“ taking many risks that worked out well.  Andrew Hungerford“™s more contemporary scenic design was “œenchanting“ with a creative use of the balcony. Overall, panelists found the production “œvery accessible to both new audiences and Shakespeare lovers“; “œone of my favorites of Shakespeare“¦and justice was done in this great work.“

Romeo and Juliet continues through November 11th. Tickets can be purchased at
